Dear Paleofriends,

I wonder if any of you have an idea of what these fossils are? They were found in a thin mudrock interval interpreted as an interdune environment within a well-documented desert sandstone of the Weber Formation (Colorado,USA) of Late Carboniferous (Pennsylvanian) to Permian age.

I received the following guesses: desert shrub bark, insect wings.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,
