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?

Neat finds! I'm thinking the first fragment is a section thru the part of a spore cone. possibly something like Calamostachys.. The other I dont recognize readily..maybe a neuropterid? pinnule fragment.
