Fossil Plant - Neuropteris And Annularia - Mcintyre Mountain Pa


Recommended Posts

We collected these Neuropteris fern leaves and stems, and Annularia (Calamite tree) leaves at McIntyre Mountain in June 2012. This site is at the very top of the mountain, where the coal pits have been reclaimed and converted to a forested park. The veins of the leaves show up very clearly in the closeup photos.

I really like your picture layout; just like a page from a fossil book!

It's too bad they are in such a rush to reclaim all those former mining properties. Not much left for we amateur Paleontologists to explore!

If we keep up our momentum, my wife has urged me to compile what we develop into a short fossil book/guide - this would be a good project for when I retire in a few years and I told her we might have enough interesting stuff by then, along with what we learn along the way, especially for beginners.

Great detail on these fossils. I second <or third or fourth or whatever> what a great layout you used for the pictures.
