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.
