ID confirmation - Calamites suckovii

Recommended Posts

I found a nice group of Calamites - I am thinking Calamites suckovii - they ARE common in this area of Johnstown, Pennsylvania.  The pattern appears to match my reference books... but I like to be sure if possible!

It may be today!!!  Directly from the book (via cut & paste)  Calamites suckovii. See Calamites cannseformis. XIII.
Calamites suckovii.   The book was printed in 1889 - A Dictionary of the Fossils of Pennsylva VOL I - So I imagine the name probably changed!
