Macro-fossil specimens were collected from eight evenly spaced locations along the face of a one hundred and fifty foot shale exposure. The exposure was located along Sand Creek northeast of Elmer, Missouri, in Macon County. The fossils were all of plant life and consisted mostly of compressions of plant fragments, some plant impressions, mineral replacements, and casts. Specimens of Pecopteris, Neuropteris, Alethopteris, Unidentifiable Fem Types, Miscellaneous Fern Particles; Tangled, Calamites, Sphenophyllum, Sigillaria, Cordaites, Ginkgo, Stigmaria, and two Unknown Carpi were found.
