paleoflor posted a topic in Member Fossil Trades Bulletin BoardL.S., To liberate storage space, I would like to offer the following plant fossils for trade. All specimens below come from the Late Carboniferous of the Piesberg quarry near Osnabrück (Germany). Scale on photographs in centimetres (1 inch = 2.54 cm). Specimens B, C, F and G show neuropterid fronds of various sizes (most likely Laveineopteris rarinervis). Note specimens B and G were recovered broken and have been glued/repaired. Specimen E is a large plate and shows reproductive structures of Calamites (E-1), a Laveineopteris frond (E-2), a strap-like Cordaites leaf, and some Annularia-like leaf whorls. If interested, I could also offer the counterpart of E. If preferable, I can cut specimen F to size (currently large slab of rock for the actual imprint). In general, please note that these specimens are rather large and heavy (I will cover the shipping costs, but you will need space to display these pieces). In return, I would be mainly interested in plant fossils from the Devonian to Cretaceous (but feel free to offer younger material also). Kind regards, Tim Specimen B: Specimen C: Specimen E: Specimen F: Specimen G:
I've been cataloguing my collection and am stumped on a few pieces which aren't really my area of expertise. I bought them a few years ago, and I know that they originate from Crock Hey, UK. I believe that they are Westphalian in age - which would mean that they are carboniferous and aged specifically between 304 - 313 MYA. I do apologise for the poor quality of photos; but it's the best that I can do. I'd greatly appreciate any assistance with identification.
