    More Pennsylvanian Plants of PA

    A few weeks ago @Jeffrey P and I met up in Eastern Pennsylvania to collect plant material in the Late Pennsylvanian Llewellyn Formation. We started our day at Centralia and then made our way to another site. I have visited Centralia a few times now but Jeff had never been there before. Our hope was to find Jeff a nice Trigonocarpus seed but unfortunately our efforts did not come up with anything. The pickings at Centralia were rather slim. However, we did see in-situ a large segment of Stigmaria ficoides root with rootlets. I ended up only keeping a few finds. The firs

    Possible Horsetail Fossil?

    Recently I found this plant fossil at the Late Triassic aged Blackstone Fm, Queensland, Australia. I think it’s a horsetail but I’m not certain.

    Swirling lines found in rock

    I've been finding fossils in limestone, sometimes I find fossils in rock that also appears to have these irregular lines interspersed. They are all shapes and sizes, I’ve attached some pictures. I am just curious as to what these are. Carbonized plant material? Or just inclusions in the rock?
  4. Hi! I work at a children's museum in Tennessee, and we go out to local elementary schools and teach science lessons. One of them is on fossils... how they form, how they are found, what they can tell us about life in the past, etc. I have been tasked with organizing our materials for this particular lesson to give to our new teachers. In cleaning out some bins, I found the fossils I have attached below. I have no idea where the museum got them, but my feeling is they have been in our possession a while. I would really like to attach a name to these fossils, what the date range

    Is this my first fossil?

    Found this in a forest in Serbia. Is this some kind of forest or maybe sea plant?

    Pennsylvanian Plant ID Help

    On Saturday I took a trip to collect some Late Pennsylvanian plant material from the Llewellyn Formation of Pennsylvania. I am still working through my finds and identifying everything, but as an initial matter I had a question about two pieces. I have a guess on what they can be and was hoping someone might be able to confirm my suspicions. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you! First, I believe that this fossil preserves the cell structure of a Calamites stem Second, are these the terminal shoots of Asterophyllites? Unfortunately some of it broke in transport b

    Plant fossil?

    I found this fossil with a bunch of Carboniferous fossils in on the Missouri River near Kansas City. I’m curious to see what it is? Looks like a plant, but I’m not sure, any ideas? The whole thing is 2.5-3 inches long.

    nebulous fossil

    Strange fossil. Found in wash south of Santa Fe, NM. P-wood in area. It is a heavy crystal rock with many swirls and whirls. Might be a coral. But just can't tell. An enigma---

    Leaf identification

    I'm super new to fossils and was wondering if anyone knows what this is?

    Old collection fossil id

    I am unable to identify these pieces from my grandad's collection. He is now unable to clearly see and so sadly couldn't identify it. It must be something, he was a zoologist and the shale meant enough to have a crack repaired. Parts look like bones to me. I'd love to get these identified so I can prep them, making them clearer so he can see them clearer again.

  14. Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian Formation: ???? Hello! it is I once again I was curious on what this might be as it looks different from what I usually see in this type shale I have found Pyrite Calamites in shale but they usually don't have this texture so I was unsure of what exactly it may be. Zoomed in picture of the texture: Other side of this shale: Not Sure if these will help with the ID but here is the picture with the end pieces visible

    Plant fossil, coconut or palm?

    This is said to be a coconut tree fossil. It’s from Liaoning, China. I don’t think Liaoning has coconut tree, rather does it look like a palm tree?

    Central Arkansas possible fossil

    A friend asked me if this might be a fossil. I don’t know but I do know where to ask! The piece is heavy and will just barely take a scratch from a high-carbon steel pick. Thanks in advance!

    Plant or Animal - Ordivician

    Please advise what type of animal is this: it could be a trilobite, brachiopod or plant-animal. N.2 N.3 N.4 - this is most likely a small trilobite ( 1 cm) N.5 N.6 N.7 -left side segment N.8 - here I put some oil on this segment for better visibility

    Devonian Fossil?

    I found this fossil??? on the Creek Trail at World’s End State Park in northern Pennsylvania. They are 3” and 2” in length. It doesn’t seem to fit with the other Devonian fossils I found. Were there plants at that time? Also does anyone know what type of rock this is? Have I been fooled and it’s just marks from chisels? There is also one very similar to this in the small museum in that area. I think it was a scout project and labeled “Unidentified”

    Is this some sort of algae ?

    Hi. We found this amongst the mortality plates. It is an ordovician exposure along the water in Green Bay Wisconsin. Can anyone help us Id? There are two of these in this plate. I've never seen anything this delicate looking in any of the other specimens.

    A Very Tiny Mystery

    Hello wonderful fossil-people! If you and you're gang enjoy solving a groovy mystery, I have a post for you! This rock was found in an area of Northern Arizona that is very well know for producing lots and lots of bryozoan, brachiopod, and crinoid fossils, as well as crystals and geodes. The bit of rock in question was found in the side of what appears to be a broken geode. There is a triangular fragment of stone that does not match the material surrounding it. There is also a white discoloration encompassing the triangle that I've highlighted in green on one of the photos below. The colo

    West Virginia fossils

    While backpacking in the Cranberry Wilderness I found this soccer size rock with what appears to be carbonized plant material encased in a sandstone matrix. Can anyone shed further light on this specimen? Thank you
  25. Last weekend I took advantage of the warm weather to visit my favorite exposure of the Llewellyn Formation in Eastern Pennsylvania and collect some Late Pennsylvanian plants. I had not been to this site in some time but I was inspired to visit it again by some recent Llewellyn Formation fern finds by @frankh8147. I had the site to myself except for the noise of nearby ATVs and BMX bikes whose riders were also seeking to take advantage of the great weather. Despite temperatures in the fifties, there was still snow on the ground. I spent about 4 hours digging out and splitting large blocks of sh
