They look like very small fish scales (pics 4 and 6) the others I am not sure.

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,
