I'm pretty sure that Septastraea hasn't changed from last year, so I'm wondering why that's marked (it's probably just an oversight though).

The first rules clarification for the year has been posted
The correct spelling for Sarcoptergii (on the Official Fossil List on http://www.soinc.org) is Sarcopterygii

Does anyone know a field guide with plants? I'm using the Audubon and there are only a couple. :/

Side note: The state test for us had rocks and minerals..?

I think the Smithsonian has more plants than the Audubon. Also its normal for tests to test you over rocks because that is part of the rules. As for minerals, it would be more sketchy cause the rules don't explicitly state identification of minerals but if its like calcite then it should pass

So what do we index fossils? Do we have to know all major index fossils, or only the ones on the list? :|

There are index fossils on the list (like explicitly stated)? Waht? But nonetheless, I use the index fossils chart from chart, but after a while its just intuitive.
