Sphenophyllum Plant Fossil

This plant fossil appears to be a Sphenophyllum. It was found in Hazard (Perry County) Kentucky in the Breathitt Group.  The fossil dates to Pennsylvanian (Carboniferous) Period. 

Recently, I have been posting a lot of fossil I received from friends years ago. My effort has been to try and document a lot of fossils I have that are unlabeled. So slow progress as I name the fossils and add them blog if they were not posted before. This fossil is one of them, my cousin Kenny gave it to me almost 10 years ago.
