Is it a leaf?

Recommended Posts

Cincy Fossil

Here's another one from Cincinnati, do you think this is plant matter?  Possibly a leaf?

 

Thank you!

Is the structure convex/concave or flat? Not like any plant fossil I have seen before.

The matrix of this specimen looks similar to that of the specimen you show in this thread. Do both come from the same locality? The other piece would then suggest a marine environment.

Fish scale all the way.

Part of a brachiopod or bivalve shell for me.

+1 for fish scale.

I could be wrong, but can it be a regenerated brachiopod valve after injury?

Now that would be something!

  Looks like fish scale?  Not sure.  My question is:   what are all the little white marks on the fossil?

Pimples? Freckles?

Remnants of the blood vessels that fed it during growth. (I think)

Perhaps the comparative image says what I think. :)
