Carboniferous fossils of west Yorkshire

Hi.  I went fossil hunting again in West Yorkshire, UK last weekend.



I didn't find many, but the ones I did find were really good.


On the 1st of February 2014 I found what looks to be a trigonocarpus seed, but I'm not sure.



The 2nd of February 2014 was a slightly better day, but I only found 2 stems, although one of them was one of the best ones I found all year.  I didn't find anything good for 40 minutes, but then I found two in five minutes.  I found a lot of smaller pieces of wood, but I didn't keep them.




1/2:  What I think is an Artisia stem (found in semi sandstone.)


3:  looks like a damaged Artisia stem (found in semi sandstone.)


4: trigonocarpus seed?  (I found this in clay, which makes it quite rare.  I've never found a fossil seed before this in the Clay, although I've  found loads in the sandstone.)


Please correct my IDs if I'm wrong.
