Rare Fossil Fern Association from Ottawa, Kansas
Stock Number  FPFKA302

Name:   Pecopteris cisti, Neuropteris scheuchzeri
Age:  Pennsylvanian
Formation:  Tonganoxie Sandstone
Location:  Ottawa, Kansas
Size:  Plate is 3.4 inches tall

Here is a very interesting association of fossil ferns from the famous Tonganoxie Sandstone of Kansas. This specimen was recently acquired from an old collection. The fossil was collected in the 1970s - we have heard that this site has been closed to collecting for a number of years. The specimen has very good color and contrast. The Pecopteris frond displays very fine detail, and the Neuropteris specimen also shows very distinct venation. This is a very collectible pair of different fossil ferns from a classic location.
