  1. Hi All, So I recently got this slab with a Annularia and Laevinopteris The seller claims that the bumps on the leaf surface are the seeds. Is this correct? TBH I am not too fussed either way, as I would have probably bought this without this "feature".
  2. coprolites with seeds, near Flagstaff, AZ

    Hello! As a new member I am excited to learn from more experienced folks on this great forum. We found these coprolites (I think that is what they are) near the Little Colorado River, near Gray Mountain, Arizona which is about 45 mins north of Flagstaff, Arizona. They were both found on the surface. We go to this area to rock hound for jasper, agate and petrified wood, which we find in plenty. Can anyone tell me: 1. Are these coprolites? 2. What kind of seeds are fossilized? 3. Based on location and seed id, who pooped these out? Thank you very much! I am also about to post pics of what I think may be a large bone fragment found the same day and in the same location.
  3. LOCATION Turon River, Hillend, NSW, Australia GEOLOGY I don't know how to find this, the rock has quartz in it, I would appreciate a link or further reading if you have any. FORMATION Grey with shiny quartz particles ASSEMBLAGE No other fossils observed at this site, it was found next to a fresh water river that had recently had a flush of water through it. It may have washed down from another site. DISCOVERY It was loose beside the river beside a rock I was sitting on, I looked down and saw this rock and thought "that looks interesting" CHARACTERISTICS I think it is a trace fossil of seeds and footprints. The "seeds" are the same shape with a slit in the middle of the shapes. The seed shapes are smooth on the surface beside the splits. They measure 8 mm x 12 mm. There are also shapes that look like trace footprints with three toes. These are all a similar size of about 8 mm to the middle "toe" and 8 mm wide. What confuses me is they are all over the rock top and bottom and sides. The whole rock is 23 cm x 14 cm and is 6 cm thick. The pics show Side A Side B Close up Close up

  5. Berries 7.jpg

    From the album 1925 Body & Trace Fossil Collection - Vegitation

    The majority of these berries are ground cherries from about 52 Ma years ago with the fruit fossilized. This is very rare to have so many specimens with the soft fruit still attached to the host.

  12. Fern Seeds

    I was reading one of my textbooks and specifically a chapter about the Carboniferous. There was a photo of seeds next to ferns and I was surprised about how large they were compared to common fern leaves. Then I remembered when peeling up shale/slate in the local stream, I found a rock with several oval pebbles. I thought maybe these were rocks or concretions. After seeing the photo, are some of these perhaps seeds? They also have a line that seems to split them laterally.
  13. Seed Fossil?

    These 2 are part of a many (50 or more) fossils/imprints I found in a creek bed on a visit this summer to our family farm in Ritchie County, WV. Since we're going back for a visit next week, I thought I'd try to ID these now and look for more while I'm there again. The bulk of the fossils/imprints I've ID'd as ferns, and maybe lycophytes (if my research so far is correct) but can't find anything on the imprints in the attached photos. I'm new to plant fossils, so would appreciate some help in ID'ing this set. Here's what I know: All the fossils/imprints I found, including the attached, were in the same 3-4 meter area along a shallow (1-1.5 meter high) creek bank in Ritchie County, WV; They were found in thick sheets of wet, muddy shale; and The 2 imprints in the photos fit into one another as a match/pair. Here are my questions: What are/were the 2 ovals that fit into one another in the photos? Is there anything else of interest I should be noticing in the attached photos and/or in the other similar fossils/imprints I've found? Note that the last photo are the 2 pieces flipped over. Thanks in advance.
  14. Seeds?

    I have a couple of rocks that look like seeds. What do you think? Do those look like bite marks on the one on the left? Let's hear your thoughts. The one on the right was in pea gravel at a playground in Iowa, I find fossil shell fossils in pea gravel sometimes. I'm not sure where I got the other one, in central Iowa.
  15. Petwood with worm and fossil poop?

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me identify these strange fossils I found in the atacama desert in South America. I believe 2 of them are seeds of some sort, and petrified wood with what looks to be a worm, and also a weird poo looking chunk. any thoughts? Thanks The seeds? petrified wood with worm? petrified poo
  16. Possible seeds in coal?

    Hi all, I have a "lump" of coal which I found at the side of a playpark many years ago and have never been able to identify the tiny fossilised things inside. I'll attach pictures I've taken down a dissecting microscope - the brown circular things are 1mm in diameter and the only other fossilised section is a 5mm wide length of something (possible plant stem) which is incomplete at both ends (and therefore not very useful). Hope someone can maybe give a suggestion or 2... Thanks in advance! Also, sorry if pics not that good...
  17. Hello, I have been trying to identify this fossil/rock for my daughter for some time now with no luck. She finds it fascinating and would like to be a Geologist when she grows up. We've been searching through books and online. Asking for your expert help on this one! Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. Origin is unknown it's been a part of my collection for decades at this point. Thank you kindly, LLVB
  18. Pretty excited about this one. It has what appears to be 2, maybe 3 specimens on it. Lacoea, the seed pod I have found before, and maybe something else?
  19. Northeast Ohio - Found 10/4

    This is a new one. Any ideas?
  20. Coral? Flower? Sponge?

    Found this in Grandpa's rock pile..he collected rocks and miscellany in his tromps throughout Central and Eastern Oregon..he has passed so I have no idea where exacty he came upon this treasure... It is 6-sided chunk of 4 to 5-sided artifaces, seemingly attached in the center of the chunk, or not...some have closed "seed pods", one has open seed pod that look like kidney bean shape, perhaps like a flower gone to seed in stages...aprox 2.5 inches each side....there is not a hole in the chunk for anything looking like a stalk or stem...rings around the outer edges of each part suggest marine life, such as a shelled creature, though since it is stuck in a nice chunk package, not sure.... Any ideas??? Thank you!
  21. Show Off Your Seeds !

    I couldn't find a previous posting on this topic so I thought I'd stir the water. To start this off I will post some seed fern seeds from Nicholas Co. WV. , an old reclaimed strip mine. Fossils occur in sandstone and shale. To date I have found only one chunk of matrix containing seeds at this site. Though I did find a loose Holcosperium at another site several miles away.(photo not currently available). The large seed on the left is reclining on its matrix throne awaiting its next gilded bowl of seedless grapes,( lest we slip into cannibalism) . The rock on the right contains both large and small spacemans (as the West Virginians say it). I'm assuming the two sizes are from separate species though I have not found confirmation or positive ID. Any link would be appreciated The small seeds are approx. 3/8" x 1/4" with obvious variety whereas the larger are 1-1/4 x 3/4.
