Here's a maple leaf from Dave's collection.

From the McAbee Fossil Beds aged at 51MYBP.

The fossils are preserved in diagentically altered diatemaceous shale.

All are carbon impressions:

This is typical of the spiders we find. Not much detail, but 8 legs are always sexy for us:

Good work from a little east of you!

Here are a few more spiders. As you can see most do not preserve well as their soft bodies squish easily. I have a few more new ones I found this summer, but I have a number of fossils to get through before they show up again. It may be a little time.

There have been no new plants identified so far. Many new possible suspects though:

I don't think it's a requirement but people like it when you do at least put the age/formation if you know it and general location.
