  1. Hello there! Yesterday, Roger @Ludwigia dropped by for a visit, and we spent the day together checking out my local haunts with Viola. The day started with some coffee and brownies, as well as lovely German gifts from Roger: a Macrocephalites sp. ammonite for Viola (I don't have a picture of it because it's up in her room) and a Brasilia bradfordensis ammonite with a hitchhiking bivalve on the back of the matrix for me!!! See pictures below: We then piled into my car and drove to our first spot: Mimico Creek in Toronto. The fossils here are from the Georgian Bay Formation (Upper Ordovician). Here's a picture of Roger and Viola checking out the site... And one of Roger wielding his hammer... Since I'm still nursing my "fossil elbow", I didn't want to hammer anything; instead, I scraped into the wall of rock and I'm happy to say that I found a couple of sweet little bivalves: one with its two valves partly open (too bad that it's not complete) and another one with some nice ornamentation visible on its shell... @Wrangellian - what do you think? Roger did a little exploring and found some fossiliferous rock further up the wall - I collected two fairly big pieces of this type of rock and, lo and behold, they contained a bunch of brachiopods and their imprints (along with some other goodies)... @Tidgy's Dad - I thought you might like to see them
  2. ID please - Ordovician - Edrioasteroid?

    Hello. I'm attaching two photos: #1) an image of a "Rare Primitive Echinoderm (Edrioasteroid) from the Upper Ordovician of Ontario, Canada," from the following fossil website: https://www.fossils-uk.com/product/new-rare-primitive-echinoderm-edrioasteroid-from-the-upper-ordovician-of-ontario-canada-sku0918-isorophuella-incondita/ #2) a fossil that I found that looks similar and is about the same size as the Edrioasteroid from #1. Is it possible that my specimen (#2) is this Edrioasteroid? Thanks for any assistance! Camille
  3. Hello. The attached photo shows two rocks found in Toronto, Southern Ontario, Canada, at Mimico Creek. I juxtaposed the two because it seemed to my amateur eyes that the one on the left might have some similarity in structure to the two "mallet-shaped" structures in the rock to the right. Any help in ID'ing these would be greatly appreciated. Camille
  4. I recently found these fossils in a ditch of a hay field on my grandmothers marina on the shores of Lake Ontario. Any information on them would be welcomed thank you!
  5. Pleurocystites squamosus Billings, 1874

    From the album Invertebrates

    Pleurocystites squamosus Billings, 1874 Ordovician Bobcaygeon Formation Brechin Carden Ontario Canada
  6. Mystery to me

    Any help identifying what these are would be very much appreciated. I have found a few trilobites, bivalves, among others in the Whitby Formation on the shore of Lake Ontario. I'm just really unsure of what these could be. Thank you in advance.
  7. Ordovician Road Cut

    Yesterday, I was lucky enough to attend a very special field trip with the Eastern Ontario Natural History Society to a massive road cut in Ontario. The rock exposed was Ordovician aged limestone, and it produced some amazing fossils. I might need some id help with some of these. The giant cephalopod was by far the best thing I found! 1. Giant Cephalopod (with hand for scale) Camerocerad or Endoceras? 2. Crinoid stems, bryozoans and Gastropod 3. Partial trilobite pygidia
  8. Ordovician - Southern Ontario - ID please?

    Hello. I found this in Mimico Creek in Toronto, Ontario. Could someone please tell me what it might be? I thought maybe some kind of cephalopod, but really have no idea. Thanks! Camille
  9. My daughter and I have started fossil hunting and came across this a few weeks ago. Pretty sure the ribbed-item (near the tip of my thumb) is a cephalopod, but unsure what the rest of the white pieces are? Thought they might be pieces of bone, or possibly wood? Not sure? Hoping someone could shed some light. Found this on the Bruce Peninsula (Ontario, Canada), on the Georgian Bay shoreline. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks, Kristin.
  10. Agnostid?

    I found this fossil a few days ago at an exposure of the Billings Shale. It was found associated with Triarthrus glabellas and brachiopods. It's structure leads me to believe that it's either an Isotelus pygidium or an agnostid, although I do not know of any agnostics described in this formation and age.
  11. Anthology Of Unidentified Fossils

    Hi again! This will probably be my last ID post for a while. This time, I've decided to put all of the Unidentified fossils in one post. These are all from the Ordovician aged Billings Shale. Help identifying these will be much appreciated! 1. Leaf-shaped imprint. Mineral inclusion? 2. Trilobite fragment? 3. Dark markings and furrows. Burrows?
  12. trip to leamington area

    down there anyways so why not stop by the beach! as a bonus there were many bird calls which i did not recognize and a few birders whom stopped by but then left because of the fog.
  13. Hello TTF! This post will contain the pictures of my science fair board, as well as the awards I received from it. Sorry for the delay, I know that some members posted requests for these months ago, but I have been busy with other things lately. I actually left part of the board at school by accident for weeks. I hope the pictures are clear enough!
  14. Fossil ID Required

    These little guys are super common when you break open the shale, along the banks of Lake Ontario, East of Toronto, in Whitby. I have scoured the internet trying to find what this can be, however the only other picture I found was on someones Blog with no identification. Any help would be appreciated, I'm so interested and this fossil hunting/identification may become a new hobby Thank you, Georgie
  15. Repairing Fossils In Shale

    Recently, I have been out fossil hunting more often than usual, and many of them have since been damaged. Some were broken during transportation, and others were broken as I excavated them. The fossils are all from the black Billings Shale, which fractures easily. Is there any way that I can repair them without leaving any obvious markings?
  16. Took our 4-year-old on a little fossil hunting trip to Craigleith, Ontario today. She had a couple nice finds (the kid knows a trilobite pygidium when she sees one!) but we were really hoping to find a whole bug. We were in luck! I’m so pleased with this find. I was looking through broken slabs of shale, prying it apart with my hands, and this little dude was just sitting inches away watching me! I think it’s pseudogygites latimarginatus again.
  17. Triarthrus?

    Hi TFF! I have just found a very interesting fossil near my home which I suspect might be the articulated left and right pleura of a Triarthrus. I have already found other fragments of Triarthrus in the same rock outcrop. (Glabellas, pleura, cephalons, etc.) It may also be a graptolite or something similar.
  18. Orthocone or Hyolithid?

    Another fossil for ID! This time, I think that I have some possible orthocone nautiloids from the Billings Shale. I found these near a small construction site near my house. Although I suspect them to be cephalopods, they may also be Hylothids. Or, they could be something else entirely! I am not an expert on these faunas at the moment, so I may be wrong. Each photo is of a different specimen. Thanks in advance! More posts about the regional science fair are to follow.
  19. Lambton Hunt

    After a brief morning hunt yesterday near my house, today was a whole day effort in Lambton County. Part of my purpose was to fill buckets with typical fossils to give to my US collecting comrades, but also as it would be Deb's season opener. A lot was found, but like I said, those buckets are surprises for some members I will be seeing next weekend. Of the stuff I am keeping, 3 pieces stick out... This Greenops is full, and just a bit buried. I found it within the first five minutes at the site, or about second or third rock I split. It was found wet so I slow-dried it and wrapped it carefully for the drive home. It survived, but will need to be stabilized as there are dangerous cracks running through this rock (not through the bug, though - phew!).
  20. Well here it is April 15th 2018 and I was supposed to go collecting Yesterday and today.... Well didn't happen .... Here is a picture of my backyard this morning.... Welcome to spring in the Great White North.. There is a pool under there somewhere that traditionally gets opened in another month.....
  21. Devonian bivalve (scallop?)

    Found in Arkona Ontario a couple weeks ago Devonian age Widder formation 38mm/1.5" across
  22. I found this Fossil Over a Decade ago

    I found this in the mid-2000's but never really had it checked out, I'm having a paleontologist look at it soon, but I wanted to get your guys opinions. I can only post 1 photo because there is a size limit.
  23. Over the weekend on Saturday, The boys in our family went out to Grand River Waterloo for fossil hunting. Although I do not have pictures of us hunting the fossils. Here are some fossils we found. Google Drive Link to my fossils I feel that the names can explain a lot about the rocks (Appreciate any help naming them). I kept the green and black ones since they looked cool (Shiny). For fossil hunting, we looked for the layered rock and crossed our fingers hoping for the best (Anywhere I can find out more strategies and techniques). That was how my dad found the fan fossil. The funny thing about the Sun fossil (gonna keep calling it the "Sun Fossil" until I find out the correct naming) was that I found it right next to the place I laid down my water bottle. Was it planted there or is that normal?? I was going to upload my fossils to the site but I could only put up one and it was too much work. Can someone explain to me how to add more than one picture in your post Thanks Nathan (man these emojis are nice) (I should be studying) (I did my homework though @Monica)
