    G’day mate! Greetings from Australia! Today we went hunting for some fossil plants. Came across a treasure trove of 200-250 MA horsetails, ferns, and club moss cones. #fossil #collectionsite

    Here’s an interesting couple of graptolites that I found in the field, but unfortunately couldn’t extract. I’m not sure what genus they are, but based on those available in the area (according to Rockd), I think they’re Diplograptus. #fossil #collection_site

    • Cool specimen, @Matthew-Gramling. @Cameron-Muskelly might be able to help you narrow down the taxonomy of this specimen even further. It would also be really helpful if you added images of the top side!

    • If it was found in GA. It mignt be Ordovician. There is more of that then Devonian rocks in GA.

    • @Samantha-Ocon and @Cameron-Muskelly. Thank you for the help. I will be sure to post more images of it asap. I’ll also give my justification for an Ordovician date.

    • My reasons for assigning the geochronology and lithostratigraphy of the fossils as Ordovician and Chickamauga Group is because they match the biostratigraphic samples for Middle to Upper Ordovician strata as described in Allen and Lester’s Contributions to the Paleontology of Northwest Georgia and the descriptions of Chickamauga Limestone in Allen and Lester’s Zonation of the Middle and Upper Ordovician Strata in Northwest Georgia. The matrix is a blue flaggy fossiliferous limestone in the form of large stones and boulders. The fossils are usually found on the surface and undersides of these boulders. They usually consist of various brachiopods, rugose corals, tabulate corals, and fenestrate bryozoans. The trilobites I posted were also discovered with them as well.

    • I will post some photos of the fossils in situ to aid in analysis.

    Picture of a young amateur paleontologist surveying a Hadrosaur or Triceratops scapula from the Hell Creek Formation of Harding County, South Dakota. Circa 1998-9. This photo is not of scientific value, but might bring about some nostalgia for anyone who remembers being a kid dreaming about dinosaurs and being a paleontologist one day.

    Here is a small Plataninophyllum leaf. The name is composed of “Platanin” for Platanus (commonly known as the Sycamore in the US and Plane Tree in the UK) and “-phyllum” for leaf. We believe it to be related to sycamores. Note the agrophic veins (the asymmetric tertiaries coming off the basal secondaries which are actually on top since the picture is upside down). #fossil

    This isn’t a fossil, but I also like to collect shells at the beach. The broken ones are especially interesting because they expose the growth layers of the mollusc, which is helpful when I’m examining fossil bivalves. I suspect that brachiopods may have had similar growth patterns too.
