9.7" Pennsylvanian Fossil Flora (Neuropteris and Lepidodendron) Plate

This is a beautiful fossil flora plate that contains Neuropteris and scale tree (Lepidodendron) fossils. It was collected from the Breathitt Formation of Leslie County, Kentucky, and is Late Carboniferous in age. These Pennsylvanian age forests are responsible for the coal shales of Kentucky and Ohio.

Neuropteris is an extinct genus of fern that reproduced from seed as opposed to sporophyte reproduction of most modern ferns. As with most seed ferns, Neurodontopteridaceae grew in tree form.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.
