    Found this plant imprint on a rock yesterday. Moenkopi formation? Is it a lycopod? You might have to zoom in to see the lattice.

    Hi, @richard-lee, was the error you were receiving about the size of the file or the file type?

    @richard-lee That would be my guess too.

    Thanks guys. Yeah, it was the file size. I figured it out eventually.

     

    @MacKenzie Smith were you commenting on the file size or the lycopod?

    Are lycopods common in the Moenkopi? This is in southern Utah, if it matters.

    Ug. So I assumed it was the Moenkopi because of info on a trails website, but the geological map of the Santa Clara quadrangle says it is Shinarump. So I guess that was the same member that I found my other specimen in, miles away.

    @richard-lee – have you played around in Macrostrat? It’s a cool digital geologic bedrock map: https://macrostrat.org/map/#/z=1.5/x=16/y=23/bedrock/lines/ you can move around to find what you are looking for.

    They also have an option to search for strata: https://macrostrat.org/sift/#/strat_name_concept/9342

    I think @mackenzie-smith was agreeing with your ID – I do too but am less familiar with fossil flora.

    How big was your file? I think the size limit is 50 mb for fossil specimens but not sure about in forum posts.

    That’s an awesome resource, thank you!!!

    Yes, the size limit is much higher in specimens.

    Yes, I was agreeing with the ID. I don’t know what’s common or not in that area, just that it would fit given the age.
