OK, correct me if I am wrong, but I do not remember finding this plant before.

YES! Seeds attached to a stem!

Were there any leaves on similar stems nearby???

Seriously had no idea this was such a winner!! Paul, I was at the site doing "clean up" work. As I was tossing broken rock into a pile I would break open some of the thicker pieces, and that is how I found all that I posted today, along with a few Megalopteris and others I did not bother posting. So, I am not sure where this one came from. I know the general area, but that is all.

So.... maybe I need to bring this one into the garage instead of under the tarp :-)

Your site, and your (and Paul's and other's) efforts, are on track to add substantially to the knowledge of a rather special time and place.

For me, this is one of the more exciting series of posts we have had the pleasure to host.

I think it is Cordaianthus, the female cone of Cordaites. Very cool.

Paul, on second thought, how do you know this Cordaianthus strobilus is female (ovule-bearing) and not male (pollen-bearing)?

Sorry. My mistake. I was skimming through things and didn't realize that there are both female and male cordaianthus . I don't know which one this is. Do you?

The specimen somewhat resembles illustrations of the pollen-bearing (male) cone. See for example the ones featured in figure 9.2 of Lab IX (Ginkgo, Cordaites and the conifers), part of the "Virtual Paleobotany Lab" by UCMP. Not sure though, hence the question...
