Plant fossil?

Recommended Posts

Hi, this specimen is from Guizhou of China.  It is Triassic.  Any idea what kind of plant is that?  There are not many plant fossils from Guizhou where you all know has a rich collection of of Keichousaurus hui and other Triassic marine reptile fossils instead.

That one might be hard to pin down.

To me it looks like a sea grass or the like.

hmm, I dont know....Kind of looks like something along the lines of a Neocalamites with possible ribbing/nodes? but that is just a guess...its there, but not the preservation isnt very sharp, but it is still cool! congrats...
