    Fossil “armpit”?

    Hi All, this is my first post. I recently found this interesting bit in southern Ontario. It was in the same river that I find brachiopods and trilobites. I couldn’t figure out what it was, but I think I may have now solved it, maybe you can confirm? I’m affectionately referring to it as an “armpit” of a Bothriolepis. Obviously not an armpit but I think it might be the part where the appendage meets the head shield? My concern is the size of my specimen. The one in the book is only 90mm for the full body. That’s basically the size of my partial specimen. I’m open to all i

    Devonian Brachiopods

    I found lots of these guys while searching in the Hungry Hollow formation near Arkona. Age is Middle/Upper Devonian.
  3. Hello guys, Summer is nearing its end so I decided to go and hunt the Niagara Escarpment of Hamilton, Ontario. The exposures I checked out at a creek ranged from the Cataract Group (early Silurian with the Whirlpool formation at its base and it sharply cuts the Queenston formation) all the way to the Clinton Group. Here is a pic of the Manitoulin formation, which is a part of the Cataract Group and is above the Whirlpool sandstone/formation. Above the Manitoulin formation is the mostly shale dominated Cabot Head formation. The Manitoulin and Cabot Head formati
  4. its my first time back in a while .. just noticing the new format anyhow i found this within 10 mins of arriving to the beach

    Possible Crinoid

    Found in the French River. Possible Crinoid?

    Cleaning of Fossil Shells

    I have had this hunk of rock from Manitoulin Island for quite some time now, but I have never attempted to really clean it before. Does anyone have any tips for cleaning the fossils, but leaving them in the rock? I would just like to be able to analyze them more closely. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  7. Like the title says, I collected this when I was a kid in Woodstock Ontario. Not sure what I'm looking at exactly. I'm thinking the bigger thing is horn coral of some kind?
  8. Hello guys, I was out fossil hunting at the Niagara Escarpment of Hamilton, Ontario today and I came across this odd piece of Rochester formation shale (Clinton Group) with a knobby object on it. Could it be anything underneath all that shale or is it just my wishful thinking?? It also got some calcitic bits on the side too.
  9. Spotted this today at an antique market. Wondering if there is any chance it is real.
  10. A few finds from this weekend. Fortunate enough to have a cottage on Lake Erie, fairly close to Rock Point Provincial Park which is known for it's exposed fossils of a 350 million year old coral reef. About half were found on the beach itself and the other half in the crushed gravel part of the driveway. I'd imagine the beach will keep yielding new finds after every storm, here is hoping for it anyway.
  11. Newbie here. Discovered this fossil on the shoreline of Bruce Peninsula, Ontario Canada, Lake Huron side in Dolomite rock. Is it Orthocone Ammonoid or Orthocone Nautiloid or something else? I believe these are common finds in the area but this one is much bigger than others I have seen and the creatures shell appears partially fossilized rather than just an impression. Any insight appreciated including possible age. Thank you.
  12. Hello all – Stumbled across this great site/forum after rekindling an interest in fossils and minerals from my youth. I was able to visit a spot I spent a lot of time in summers as a child with my own children and looking to get them interested as well. Location: Southern Ontario on Lake Erie After doing a little research, according to this map (https://www.geologyontario.mndmf.gov.on.ca/mndmfiles/pub/data/imaging/M2544/M2544.pdf) from the Province of Ontario’s Ministry of Northern Development and Mines, the bedrock is Middle Devonian (from the Detroit River Gp.; Onondaga Fm. –

    Mystery fossil ON, CA. Coral?

    Hi folks, I found this fossil a while back along the bed of a small creek that runs through our property in southern Ontario, Canada. The pronounced cells remind me a lot of honeycomb, but I’ve heard that would be quite rare to find fossilized. I’m thinking a coral might be more likely, but I don’t know a lot about fossils. Any input is appreciated.
  14. I've started a gallery of trilobites of Laurentia that are in my collection. Most are from Ontario and Quebec, Canada. I'll also start a gallery of echinoderms from the same units.

    Help with identification

    Hi all. Can anyone identify what this crystallization in this Owen Sound flagstone might be or once was? I found this piece at a garden centre when I was buying some flagstones. It was labelled as Owen Sound/Wiarton (Ontario, Canada) flagstone. The large area is about 4 inches wide. Appreciate the help. Cheers. Mark
  20. Spent yesterday and today out and about in my area and thought I'd snap a few pics and show. Just as context, my city's rocks are all glacial erratics from the Devonian. I didn't find very much, nor did I expect to. The photos are not of the specimens I brought home (I still need to do that), but some odds and ends from this part of the province. Saturday's location is a largely abandoned sand and gravel quarry, and was one of the last barriers of a massive lake during the last glacial period to finally break and spread till and cobble love all over this part of the p
