I was going through some of my photo files today and ran across some photos of palynomorphs that I extracted from clay underlying a T. rex skeleton in the Hell Creek of South Dakota several years ago. I recovered many plant macrofossils as well. My favorite palynomorph recovered is this Wodehousia spinata, characteristic of Late-Cretaceous and early Paleogene time (sorry the photos aren't the best): Here's a trilete pteridophyte spore: Here are some of the plant macrofossils. Metasequoia: External mold /cast of the cone of Metasequoia: Unidentified leaf cf. Marmarthia
Hello, This is my first post of this forum and I would like to show you some of my unidentified macro plant spores and vertebrate remains found in residue from fallen bits of plant debris bed picked up at Yaverland IOW, photos were taken under AmScope USB microscope, hope you like them. Still to experiment with the Toupview stacking software, watch this space. The Albaneretontid jaw holds nine teeth, this is the one I hope to get my stacking software working on. I have thrown in a close up of a termite coprolite apparently they have not changed in shape (hexagonal) for 75 million years. These are so abundant in the plant debris bed residue you end up ignoring them after a while. The rest I have not identified yet and are actually mega spores I believe. Also I found a tiny insect wing on the surface of some Bembridge limestone and a section of reed from a different piece. This is why the Isle of Wight is such a special place for me.
