Devonian Lycopsid?

Recommended Posts

I found this interesting fossil in the area of the Beltzville dam in Pennsylvania. Exposures in the area are generally Upper Devonian Mahantango Formation so I was surprised to see what looked to me like a lycopsid plant. The area where I spotted this find was mostly devoid of fossils but there were exposures with usual marine fauna within a few hundred yards. If anyone has any thoughts, I would appreciate it!5dc5cae306ad0_beltzvilleroot.thumb.jpg.6e1289501c6e8b118e8b66725b1dda70.jpg

I agree. 

Those are brachiopod imprints, I think.

Still a collectible specimen, I think! I would take that whole chunk home as is.
