Fossils from the Coalfields

Recommended Posts

Huntlyfossils

A few of the fossils I have found in the Coalfeilds Central Queensland ,Australia.

All are of Permian age and from a terrestrial environment, I'm unsure of the species of plants.

Hoping to find more in the future.

Wow, really nice specimens.  I especially like the fossils in photos 3 and 4.  I've never seen anything like #4.  Do you know the ID?

I agree with the others - all of your finds look great, but #4 is really unique - congratulations!

I think #4 is probably some sort of Equisetales, or Calamitales , (horsetail fossils), rather than seeds.

Neocalamites  sp. is a possibility.

I’m going to be the oddball and say that I like #6 the best. :P It looks like you can  still make out the bark and growth rings. I bet a little prepping would make it really stand out!  A diamond in the rough. 

 

I concede that #4 is also very interesting too. ;) 

 

Wish I could help with IDs, but beyond knowing that it all seems to be plant material, my knowledge is limited.
