    Fossils in MA I discovered

    these are the fossils i discovered over at a sight in north Attleboro wanting to follow in the footsteps of a group of tuft university students who discovered a mayfly a few years ago this is the actual fossils i found. hoping I find a new species in rhode island just waiting to be discovered if that's possible today I still find them there and donate them at the natural history museum and planetarium in Providence RI sometimes you can see me carry a bag full of fossils i found

    Mazon Creek fossil IDs

    Hi guys. I'm looking for some more help identifying these Mazon Creek (Illinois) fossils. I think one is some sort of calamites? Thanks for your time.

    Calamites or Cordaites?

    Many years ago my dad and I visited St. Clair, PA to collect its famed Late Pennsylvanian plant material. With the closure of St. Clair to public collecting, several years ago, we went to the next best place: Centralia, PA. In going back through our finds to ascribe a proper classification to them, I have come across several finds that I believe could either be Calamites stems or Cordaites leaves. The issue is that these fossils preserved without much detail to go on. In doing some research online and on here, I think I have figured it out, but I am not completely sure. Any help is greatly app

    Annularia or Asterophyllites?

    A couple of years ago I visited a site in Central Pennsylvania with exposure to the Late Pennsylvanian Llewellyn Formation. I found a lot of Annularia and Calamites pieces. I also found this single whirl. I initially chalked it up as just another piece of Annularia. I recently came across the publication "Fossil Plants From the Anthracite Coal Fields of Eastern Pennsylvania." The publication has been very helpful in assisting me put a species identifications with all of my finds from the various Llewellyn Formation sites I have been to. When I tried to compare this piece to the images of Annul

    Calamites

    From Mattson(Mississippian) or Fantasque formation(Pennsylvanian) just outside of Fort Laird NWT Canada. these were quick snap shots before i had to jump in helicopter from a fire tower on top of a small mountain. i am guessing based of discription it is Calamites cistii? did my own research so could be way off. From what i have read this is one of the only Carboniferous deposits in the entire region.

  12. Hello all Since I can't go to school for a couple of weeks I have time to catch up with some ID's. Most of these plants and pieces of wood have been in my collection for years, thinking it's impossible to ID these because of lack of location. All of these come from old collections without labelling. I know next to nothing about plants or wood. 1: No location at all. Piece is about 10 cm wide. I am not 100% this is actually wood and not just a mineral, but I think these are growth rings. 2: This piece has been in my family for the past 3 generati
  13. Conditions in Western PA have been unusually warm recently, with highs in the 40s and 50s. I decided to take advantage of this warm spell by getting a little bit of fossil hunting in. I decided to do a hunt focused on plants as I’ve been hunting for vertebrates for the better part of the last year and a half and, although I could never get tired of vertebrates I thought some variety was well overdue. So I headed to one of my favorite plant localities in the area. It is located in the Connellsville Sandstone of the Casselman Formation, which is in turn the upper half of the Conemaugh Group. T
  14. Dear all, It was difficult, very difficult to wait with posting, since I am very, very excited about this fossil find. However, I also wanted the Dutch magazine version to come out first. Well, it finally did this Tuesday, so here is some info in English, along with a couple of the figures. During a visit to the Piesberg near Osnabrück (Germany) in 2010, I found a stem fragment of Calamites decorated with strange, elongate-oval structures [Fig. 1]. While those features were unusual and quite remarkable, it proved difficult to find information about them and the fossil consequently went into

    Mystery from the Mingus

    I saw this in a huge sandstone rock in the Pennsylvanian deposits of Palo Pinto County, Texas. It is either the Mingus or Brazos River Formation where I saw lots of wood preserved. Calamites and stigmaria everywhere but also a brachiopod in a lower layer. It may just be geologic shatter marks but I can't make any sense out of it at all. This is the Strawn Group of the Des Moines Series. The whole photo shows a space about 20 X 30 cm.
  16. Deep in the heart of Pennsylvania's coal country runs the Carboniferous Lewellyn Formation. Once a vast tract of swampland, the area was home to 100 ft. tall Calamites (an extinct relative of modern herbaceous horsetails), giant tree ferns and other enormous plants, plus proportionally large insects. The conditions during the intervening millennia were just right for the plants to break down into iron-based minerals, including pyrophyllite and kaolinite, leaving a coating of white powder over the impressions in the rock. In rare spots, the iron minerals come in yellow, orange or re
  17. Found this antiquing. Was only marked "petrified rock"..It is black & charcoal gray in color with a vertical ribbed texture and some rounded ends. Measures 6.5" tall x 5.5" x 4" and weighs 8lbs 1.1 oz. Is it petrified wood ? Petrified cactus? Or something else? It's only letting me upload 1 photo. Took pics with phone and guess their too big. Will try to post more.

    Megalichthys of Illinois

    Yesterday i found a very rare Megalichthys jaw with dozens of teeth still attached in the Carboniferous of Illinois, USA. This is possibly the best known example of this fish found in Illinois. Not sure yet though. I still need to do more research. You can see four larger teeth in cross-section on the matrix waiting to be prepped out. Then there are smaller teeth in-between the larger ones, maybe 4× smaller. I also found several large scales. I'll attach the best one. All of this material still needs a proper repair and prep job. The preservation on this ma

    Megalichthys Linocut Print

    On finding a Megalichthys scale fossil from the Late Carboniferous in my local stream I designed, carved and printed a lino-block of the carnivorous freshwater fish. In the same slab of rock that the scale was found were Lepidodendron and Calamites fossils that would have been deposited at the bottom of the coal swamp. I would like to have thought of this fish hiding in the murky waters alongside these plants and I based my reconstruction on this. I plan to do a series of three including Rhizodopsis and Rhabdoderma, alongside their respective surrounding vegetation.
  21. Hi all, My friends recently visited Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia. While they were there they went on a fossil hunt with a geologist who curates the local museum. They were told that they could collect the small, loose stuff, and so brought back plenty of nice fossils. They gave a couple specimens to me, and I’m just wondering about IDing them. There are a lot of Calamites fossils among what they brought back, but I’m having trouble with the rest. I live in the Ordovician and don’t have a lot of experience with Carboniferous flora except finding a few pretties in Pittsburg
