I know figuring out the IDs of bug wings can be very difficult, but if anyone on here can help I'd greatly appreciate it! I've found these and some others (that I put somewhere I would definitely remember) near Humboldt, Nebraska in the Indian Cave sandstone member of the Towne Formation which puts their age late Pennsylvanian to early Permian. To be completely honest I've wondered if a couple of them might actually be leaf impressions, but I'll let y'all help me figure that out.

Lol my thoughts exactly... the third and fourth ones I've gone back and fourth on, but I'm still pretty sure they're wings...

Very nice fossils! I would have called 3 and 4 sphenophyllum leaves, mostly because I have never found insect wings..

@westcoastI definitely see what you mean with the 3rs and 4th possibly being sphenophytes. I honestly don't have any experience with plants or insects (Nebraska is mainly aquatic) so if anyone knows someone who does please tag them or let me know.

For 5 I would ask Dr. Gunther Bechly  bechly@mac.com - he is a specialist for dragonflies.
