Leaf or Insect Wing?


Recommended Posts

I’m not sure what I have here, I might have found this either in my backyard or in a nearby creek... I’m guessing that it was the creek. I was looking for rocks for my pond (2006). The fossil did not appear until a year or two later and I always wondered what it was.

 

It measures 95mm x 35mm.

Any clue would be greatly appreciated.

 

thanks in advance.

Coral ?

Definitely a longitudinal section through a solitary rugose coral (horn coral). It does look like a wing or leaf but will extend into the rock rather being in a single plane. :)

It is a solitary rugosan coral, partially worn through to show a longitudinal section.

There are a lot of Devonian rocks in western NY if I’m not mistaken. And such corals are very common in the Devonian.
