Please Help Id Devonian (Plant?) Fossil


Recommended Posts


Hi everyone,

I found this strange fossil in the 385 million year old scoharie formation. I was wondering if any fossil plant experts could give a more precise ID on this thing (genera would be nice. Could it be Wattieza?)

I used a penny for scale. The fossil is quite large...

Thanks in advance,

Not sure you will be able to ID this to a certain species, or even genus.

The Devonian plants need more work done, although Gilboa is fairly well studied.

Try to get access to some of these papers.

Maybe you will find something similar in one of them.
