I have included three photos using the Bresser MikrOkular camera below from my thin section of Permian floodplain deposit viewed using my LOMO MNC-1 polarising microscope. I can’t see any obvious fossils. Possible fossils from such floodplains were described in an article by Simon et al in the Journal of Sedimentary Research, http://jsedres.geoscienceworld.org/content/86/8/944.
A map of the world in the Permian is not as we would think of it today – a large single continent:
My slide comes from Dona Ana County in New Mexico – its location in the USA and the county map is shown below, together with the area’s stratigraphy:
