    Collection of trilobites I've found

    Here are some of the most intact trilobite fragments I've collected from breaking apart shale. Pic 1 is very well preserved though I do wish there could have been more of it. Pic 2 may have some of the best 3-D nature to it, especially where you can see both sides. Pic 3 looks really awesome in my opinion, but what really sells this one for me is what I suspect to be a horseshoe crab in the bottom middle, though additional input is much appreciated. Pic 4 is the first one I found from shale. Pic 5 is the first trilobite I ever found on my first fo

    Can you help identify this?

    Just found this fossil laying in a rock quarry while fishing, looks like a bone running all the way throughout the rock? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Odd shapes in shale

    Few weeks ago started breaking open some pieces of shale. I've found lots of trilobite fragments that I'll post later, but what's intriguing me is these small bits of things that I find quite a lot. I can't find anything on what they might be and my closest guess is perhaps some bits of crinoids? Does anyone have more experience than me with such things?
  4. 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.

    What Type Coral

    I am new to this group and would appreciate any help provided in identifying this fossil. All I know is that it is a coral; I found it in the Wainfleet, ON area decades ago.

    Another Quarry Find

    Found another cool piece at work today- is it anything special? It came out of a load of rubble from the Milton Quarry, in Milton, Ontario.
  7. 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

    London Ontario Favosite?

    Hi, I found this fossil along the Thames River in London Ontario. The area I'm in is part of the Dundee Formation which is Devonian. Can anyone identify/confirm if this is a Favosite coral? Thank you!

    Possible fin from unknown period

    Hey everyone, I have this fossil I found along a beach when I was a kid. Unfortunately, I have no knowledge as to where I found it, other than it was an Ontario provincial park. I suspect it's a fish fin from either the Silurian or Devonian, but I want to get the thoughts of someone who knows more on fauna of this time. Thanks! Ps. There's a little something on the side of the rock that may help with id, it's in the second pic. Looks to me like a part of a plant.

    Devonian Brachiopods

    I found lots of these guys while searching in the Hungry Hollow formation near Arkona. Age is Middle/Upper Devonian.

    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

    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!
  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. Spotted this today at an antique market. Wondering if there is any chance it is real.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  21. 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.
