Stock Number  FPFMO308

Name:   Fossil Seed Fern Frond
Age:  Pennsylvanian
Formation:  Braidwood Formation
Location:  Johnson County, Missouri

This is a large fossil seed fern frond from the Pennsylvanian of Missouri. The seed fern has been preserved in a siderite concretion. Both halves (part and counterpart) of the nodule are present. The dark color of the seed fern contrasts nicely with the orangish concretion. The fossil exhibits fine detail, and the individual leaflets of the frond are very well defined. This is a wonderful specimen of a fossil seed fern frond from the Coal Age of the Midwestern United States.
