Mudstone Leaf Print?


Recommended Posts

Is this area known for having plant fossils?

I don't think it is a leaf, I don't see any veins, stem or tail of the leaf.

Looking forward to meeting my fellow Singaporean collectors! Do PM me if you are a Singaporean, or an overseas fossil-collector coming here for a holiday!

Its hard to say, but personally i would say no. Like Andy stated, i do not see any trace of veins.

But then again, im not an expert on such fossils.

Definitely not a plant fossil. The area is Ordovician aged sediments. The closest plant bearing sediments are at least 100 miles south.

Finding my way through life; one fossil at a time.

I believe it is a stain also.

I'm curious what the long dark lines are... trace fossils? Just mineral stains thru cracks in the next layer?
