A0004 -- Cordaites borassifolius or other?

A0015 -- Calamoriophyllum sp. or other?

A0017 -- Plant debris plus something interesting.

A0018 -- Uncertain, possibly a worm?

As always, any help from the usual gang is greatly appreciated.

Fossil hunting is easy -- they don't run away when you shoot at them!

@Mark Kmiecik Could you get closer photos of the last one? And is it Braidwood or Essex?

 

@connorp It's Braidwood. The photo is as good as it will get. Of course you know that if you click or tap on it, it will enlarge it. I played with the lighting, contrast and exposure a lot to get it that good. In hand, it's nearly invisible. I can put an enlarged insert in, as I did in the A0017 photo if you think that would help, but it will take a while as I'll have to make room for it. Here's a quick blow-up.

Tough to say, but I am thinking this might be a millipede section. There looks to be clear segmentation.

I would agree that A0018 might be a section of millipede but would need better resolution pictures or seeing it in person to confirm.

Thanks to both of you. I value your input. At first I thought it was a poorly preserved bit of Pecopteris sp. I'm working with a new (to me) camera app for my iPhone 7. I think I can get better photos than these, but I'm not very well versed in using the app for max resolution yet. Still experimenting with various facets to get good results. I hope there's better photos in my future.

 A0017 is the subsurface of an algae called Taeniophyllum latifolium. This mesh-like pattern is exposed when the plant is degraded and the smooth outer layer is removed. It is most often seen only as a small section that happens to be in a loose association with some type of larger aquatic animal.

 

Hope this helps,

Jack
