    Fossil or not?

    Here I have two more rocks that I found in the Woodbridge, NJ area. I could see some type of shell in one of the rocks and possible plant material in the other. Let me know what you think please. Sorry here is the other photo.

    Leaf identification

    Leaf or Flower Petal?

    Hello, Can anyone help identify this leaf with crenately lobed margins from the Florissant Formation? It sort of looks like a flower petal, even though that's probably a long shot. It's really prehistoric looking and it caught my eye! I haven't seen any leaves like it from the Florissant area. Thanks in advance for the help! Aforementioned leaf is approximately 7/12 inches long.
  4. I've spent some time browsing this forum and I've noticed there is a huge range of fossil diversity between member collections and also within a members own collection so it led me to this thread idea.... let's see the best of the best in one area! What are your personal favourite fossils in your collection? To keep this sensible, maybe keep it to the top 2 in your collection (cos we all have more than just 1 favourite), what the fossil is, why it's in your top 2 and a couple of pics per fossil In my top 2 I have.... Megalodon tooth (96mm slant height), it's not my
  5. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Possibly Upper Winterset Limestone Hello! I happened to come across one odd fossil that I could not recognize Some close ups on the leaves The only thing I could certainly determine it is some sort of Fern but beyond that I am unfamiliar of what species it could belong to My next specimen is a Fern leaf of some sort but due to its poor preservation is hard for me to determine what it is from, any Ideas?

    Florissant Leaf- Cedrelospermum?

    Hi everyone, I wanted to confirm the identity of one of the leaves I found in Florissant, CO back in 2017. At one point or another I saw the genus Cedrelospermum pop up on here or instagram associated with a leaf which caught my eye in its similarity to my own. I would be interested in seeing your opinions. compared to images I found elsewhere online

    Green river material

    Hello everyone I'm currently cataloguing my fossil collection and have came across some green river fossils with no real ID. I would greatly appreciate any advice from the green river buffs out. First up are some insects. Both labeled as from the Parachute creek member in Garfield County. Size is around 1cm each.

    Florissant insects.

    Nothing has been said in the Colorado section for almost a year now so lets kick it back up. A little over a week ago I posted some pictures of florissant stuff in the I.D. section. I got a lot of good help and then for the ones we couldn't figure out I tried searching for some that are similar but there's not many different photos online from florissant. I was wondering if anyone could help or if someone knew the florissant formation really well.

    Fish scale from Ras al Khaimah?

    Hello, I found this fossil a while ago on a trip to Ras al Khaimah (an Emirate/state in the United Arab Emirates). It looks a bit worn, but it is still interesting. It has some strange patterns on it, and I am wondering if it could be a fish scale. I think the time period it's from is Cretaceous, but I am not very sure.

    Thrift store fossil leaf

    Hey all, Picked this up as a gift for my girlfriend's brother. Today's his birthday and I figured I'd try and start his fossil collection... I asked the shopowner for details but she said her mother must have received this one something like 50 years ago. Dead end. If anybody has any guesses I'd love to be able to tell him what he now owns! Thank you guys so much!
  12. Here's a part counterpart of a leaf I split from the shales of the Allenby Formation at a road cut north west of Princeton, BC. This is the main collection site along the road that runs along the eastern shore of the Tullameen River. Has anybody seen a similar leaf and been able to identify it from Paleocene or Eocene deposits? The veins remind me of Tsukada sp. but this leaf is much narrower. I've also considered a species of Betula (Beech) but again either the leaves are too wide or the serrated edges are larger than what's indicated on this leaf. I'm down to a species of Alnus (

    Calling Palebotanists!

    Ya know, I'm great at plant identification if it's currently growing in my region. Dive back to the Paleozoic and I can tell Calamites from Cordaites, but that's about my limit without a book in hand. So far, I've had 8 and I still don't know what this is! I'm pondering the frond-like object running diagonally across the center of the picture. It looks like a fruiting body from Cordaites, but it lacks the sporophyll. It also resembles Corynepteris angustissima, but the only illustration I can find lacks sufficient detail. This came from a mid-late Pennsylvanian Lewellyn Formation e

    Leaf in Amber

    Many things get stuck in sap and then turn into amber including leaves. If one were to sand it down, break it, cut it, etc and get the leaf out would it feel like a normal leaf or just crumble because it is 10s of millions of years old? I don't have a leaf in amber and I'm not planning on doing this just curious. And if there was a seed could it be planted and sprout a tree?
  19. Here's a collection of all the specimens from florissant i still need an I.D. for. This large leaf i need an I.D. for Small bug about 1 centimeter across Some sort of moth i have no clue what insect this is. Could this be a dragonfly wing about 2 centimeters long but still partially covered. Could this be a wing to the right of the leaf Last one some sort of flying bug.

    Florissant I.Ds

    At Florissant Colorado (dated to the Eocene) my family and I found these fossils and I would like to I D them to know what I found. I didn’t have a 12 inch/30 centimeter ruler so I used my six inch to make a ruler on a piece of paper it is accurate I promise. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
  21. I was encouraged to share this in the forum so here it goes. I was given a pile of "amber" and two pieces that may or may not (most likely not) have something inside. After the "amber" failed the saltwater float test it was proposed that I may have copal, NOT amber. I tried my best to take as clear of pictures as my camera phone would allow. The first piece supposedly it has a "bug or stick or something" inside. The copal, if it really is copal, does not appear very clear, even with a light source behind it. The second piece is a little more transparent when the light shines throug

    Fairy Wasp

    Finally found a bug, completely by accident, that I could identify. I was looking at a piece of burmite with part of a leaf present when I noticed a tiny little insect just under the leaf. Using my 10 x loupe, it was fairly tiny, so I checked it with my dino-lite. It was what appeared to be a tiny wasp like critter. So after working the backside of the piece down a bit (not wanting to destroy the leaf) I got these views. Pic 1 is at 50 x, pics 2-4 are at 200 x with #4 being cropped & enlarged from 3. A tiny, short lived parasitic wasp that has (still exists today) odd shaped wings with a f
