Hi there guys!

Just received those pieces as pine cones. I believe that's alright, right?
Collected from West Sahara - Morroco.

Those are some very nice pine cones, very well detailed.  Great acquisition.

Thank you friend! 
As those are my first pine cones, I just wanted to be sure!

Looks good to me. Morocco really does have an astonishing array of prehistoric flora and fauna .

These are NOT pine cones.  Pine cones are from conifers, a tree.   These are seed pods from an ancient plant called Horse Tails?   Still cool though.  I have some of these myself.

Good call RBJ ;). They look like an Equisetum ...there is even a giant species.

Yes, exactly.  I could not remember that they are called Equisetum.  Thank you

I see. That seems about right. Pteridophyte then... =)
