    Shinarump conglomerate. Thought it was a lycopod at first, but others have suggested it is a descaled araucarioxylon. What do you guys think? Either way, it’s a really detailed specimen.

    @richard-lee I believe this is one of those Lepidodendrons that crossed into the Triassic. Not too many of them. The diamond shaped leaf bases are what makes me think that and rule out araucarioxylon which I don’t believe has that external texture.

    Neat! Well, I ended up collecting it. If it’s kind of rare, should I do anything for the sake of science and documentation? Or no?

    @richard-lee you can enter in all of the data and images of the fossil into your specimen collection on myFOSSIL. The data will be curated by our staff and can be sent along to larger data aggregators so that your specimen will be visible to the larger research community!
