  1. Lise found the first blastoid of the year at Arkona, during last weeks spectacular warm spell. She also found the first Petoskey stone, though there was very little of Lake Huron’s shoreline free of snow and ice. I, however, found a stromatoporoid. An interesting piece, from a chunk of armour stone, quarried from somewhere or other. A spectacular ice nugget was also found.
  2. From the album: Ordovician

    Anazyga recurvirosta (brachiopods) Upper Ordovician Verulam Formation James Dick Quarry Brechin, Ontario
  3. From the album: Misha's Middle Devonian Fossils

    Tornoceras arkonense, Bactrites arkonensis Givetian Arkona Shale Formation, Hungry Hollow, Ontario, Canada. I do not remember if these were from a trade, contest or gift but these wonderful little fossils were kindly sent to me by @Monica
  4. From the album: Misha's Middle Devonian Fossils

    Eldredgeops rana, Microcyclus thedfordensis Givetian Arkona Shale Formation, Hungry Hollow, Ontario, Canada. I do not remember if these were from a trade, conttest or gift but they were kindly sent to me by @Monica
  5. I'm trying to identify a possible straight cephalopod fragment my wife found at Peterson Park beach on the Leelanau peninsula. I can't seem to locate information about straight cephalopods in Michigan, but I'm finding some on cephalopods in the Arkona shale in Ontario. What would be the corresponding Michigan equivalent to the Arkona shale?

    Georgian Bay Bryozoa

    These bits are on the same piece of rock, kindly sent to me by the marvelous @Monica. They are from the Etobicoke Creek, Toronto, Ontario, Canada and are Georgian Bay Formation which is Late Ordovician in age. I think they are likely bryozoa, but stromatoporoid might be possible for the first one and algae for the second. They are found in a piece of rock that also contains Paupospira (was Lophospira) gastropods, crinoid stems and individual columnals, Cornulites flexuosus and Flexicalymene granulosa. The first one doesn't seem to have much depth to it. 1 to 2 mm at most.
  7. I found this fossil in the Georgian bay formation in the GTA in southern Ontario. I have no idea what the area highlighted in blue is (first picture). It looks like a slug or some type of annelid. My only guess is some type of Machaeridian, but I doubt it's that as well. Any ideas? It measures around 9 cm tip to tip, Thanks
  8. Found along the shore of the North Channel at Little Current, Ontario. Large, bumpy nodule which seems to be completely formed of (calcite?) crystals all the way through (I'm surprised by the multiple colours, but maybe that's normal?). I'm assuming it's a sponge, though wondering if someone could give a more specific ID or perhaps explain the crystallization seen here.
  9. Found in a roadside cut on Goat Island, just north of Manitoulin Island's swing bridge. A layer of hexagonal "scales" overlaying a branched structure. What is this? I have no idea what I'm looking at! Also the top corner has a small ribbed structure which seems to be separate from the rest. If someone has an ID for this as well, that'd be amazing!
  10. Found on Manitoulin Island. I believe at Kagawong... but unfortunately, it's been a while and I didn't make any notes at the time.
  11. Found along the shores of the North Channel at Little Current, Manitoulin Island. Slightly domed. Knobby outside, crystalline (calcite?) inside.
  12. Found along the shore of the North Channel at Little Current on Manitoulin Island. Any chance this can be ID'd more specifically? I
  13. Found on the shore of the North Channel at Little Current, Manitoulin Island, Ontario. The side of the piece features a transverse view of a Crinoid. Can this be ID'd more specifically? Above is some sort of shell. Can this be ID'd? There are various other small fossils, though I don't know if those are identifiable.
  14. I found this along the shore of the North Channel at Little Current, Manitoulin Island, Ontario. I understand the small dark traces are Graptolites. Would anyone have any info on what I assume is a Trilobite?
  15. From the album: Echinoderm Collection

    Pleurocystites squamosus (Parseley, 1982 (?)) with partial Isorophusella incondita (Raymond, 1915 ) attached to the cystoid. Upper Bobcaygeon Formation, Middle Ordovician. Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada. Plate is 11cm long.
  16. Hi guys I decided to rescue and acquire a new unlabelled specimen. It appears to be a rugose solitary coral that can possibly come from the Devonian of south western Ontario. Can anyone give me any leads on the species level??

    As promised here is another of the specimens that I prepared that will be included in the new "Dawn of Life" gallery at the ROM. Not sure it belongs in the Preparation topic as I only have the single picture. Moderator feel free to move. Those that know me realize that I hate taking pictures. There are occasions when you get to work on a specimen that you absolutely do not want to return at the end of preparation. That was certainly the case with this one. Of all the specimens I have ever prepared for someone else, this plate is probably the one that I most wanted to keep for my o
  18. Today Deb and I made the two hour drive up to just outside the town of Formosa, Ontario, to have a look at the Formosa reef limestone, which is part of the Amherstburg Formation. This road cut is the type locality for this material, and it was humbling to be at the exact same location that researchers of yesteryear such as Ludvigsen and Fagerstrom derived their material that formed the basis of their published work on it. Here are some shots of the road cut. Hardly does it justice. This represents a single, massive biohermal knoll. I've wanted to visit this site for a while now, h
  19. Hi guys so today I came across a new shop that popped up in downtown Hamilton, Ontario. Anyway long story short I bought what appears to be Silurian coral fossil that originated somewhere on the Niagara Escarpment in Ontario or the State of New York. This fossil came from a peculiar museum that liquidated its collections in Niagara of Ontario and closed but the fossil didnt come with a label. Can anyone help me pin down what it is? I have never encountered a fossil like this on the Niagara Escarpment of Hamilton, Ontario. Also this was being sold along with o
  20. Finally I can share an incredible piece with you all!!!!!!!! I have been very fortunate to be able to do invertebrate fossil preparation for The Royal Ontario Museum (The ROM). I have recently been given permission to share pictures of some of the work that I have done for them. Thank you Dr. J.B. Caron. In the coming weeks I will share some pictures of other pieces I did for them. In total I prepared about 12 pieces for them out of their collection and I donated 7 pieces for the new gallery. In case you are not already aware they will be opening a major new fossil gall
  21. Well, since moving to Ottawa, I haven't had the chance to go out fossil hunting. There wasn't a whole lot of info on the web about the geology here. So my wife and I decided to buckle up and find a spot ourselves (without any hammers or chisels). We tend to be very lucky people, but I was surprised by the THOUSANDS of trilobites we came across in a matter of 20 minutes. We were on the shoreline of the Ottawa river, we found a certain type of shale that was just crawling with them. If any lucky soul goes to the spot where we left all the remnants of our hunt, they will sure be having a good day
  22. A year ago I was able to hook up with my field comrade for some time in the Lagerstatte of the Silurian Eramosa in Ontario (northern section). This was a place where land and sea scorpions were found by the ROM. We did not find any. We obtained permission to enter quarries on account of connections and complying by safety rules. They do not let casual collectors in, so it was on account of those connections that we gained access. These quarries specialize in flagstone. Much of it is blank. Our focus was on the rubbly upper portion of the Silurian. As stated, fossils are ver

  24. So I was at Arkona with my family recently, and at the flooded pit my mom found this piece It's about an inch long It's the hole(?) that I'm confused about. The only thing I can think of is some type of coral, but I really have no idea.
  25. My daughter found this rock at Kew Beach in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She thought her dad knew everything but he can't help with this! She is very excited to know what she found and Google has made us more uncertain rather than certain. We're hoping the community here can tell us what she found or at least point us in the right direction. Thanks, Steve & Big Bunny
