Cone A (picture 1) is a mature cordaitean cone and cone B (picture 2) is taphonomically degraded. A golden coprolite was identified in proximity to cone A (picture 1) and a single brown coprolite was identified in the matrix (picture 3). Plate 17B is a successive peel taken from the same coal ball as plate 17A.
