Excellent Annularia Whorl from the Coal Age
Stock Number  FPFMO326

Name:   Annularia Whorl
Age:  Pennsylvanian
Formation:  Braidwood Formation
Location:  Johnson County, Missouri
Size:  Concretion is 1.4 inches tall

Here is a very nice fossil plant from Missouri. This is Annularia sp. from the Coal Age. Annularia represent the leaf whorls of the Calamites plant. This fossil is wonderfully preserved in a concretion. Both halves of the concretion are present, so both part and counterpart of the fossil are intact. The plant exhibits very fine detail - the central stem of the plant is quite visible, and a large, distinct whorl of long, linear leaves is clearly defined. The dark brown fossil contrasts beautifully with the orangish matrix. This is an excellent specimen of Annularia from the ''Show Me'' State.
