you need to come get some gravel out of the creek with me big rock came from here http://goo.gl/maps/N9688 the fish I found came from here years ago http://goo.gl/maps/6iV0fVery nice War! I'm jealous.
I've got a fossil of early Triassic Dicriodium leaves (odontopteroides species) that we dated to roughly 242-238Ma in class. They were taken from the Dinmore Claypit, which is still an active quarry today. The Dicroidium was found in nice fine grained siltstone, and there was another layer of sed just a few meters away from where I was digging where people found things from the late Jurassic (I think).
I found the Dicriodium in a random siltstone pile surrounded by coal tailings that had been carted in from different areas - so I don't actually know where these leaves fell.
In the first pit we were fossicking in, I found two fairly good fossils of some other species of Dicroidium. But they were too small to tell exactly what, as you need to find evidence of veins and patterns in the leaves.
They were in the 250-300Ma vicinity going from my memory of the prac booklet.
I would actually have more info, but I had to hand the workbook in to be marked.
Where exactly did you find them War, would be interesting to go have a look.
It was certainly interesting in class to see how you compare recent plants to extinct plants to determine paleo climates and atmospheres etc.
