  1. First, if anyone in the Toronto area is interested in going fossil hunting along Mimico or Etobicoke Creeks, I'd welcome the company! Before I get to a couple of better finds, I'm curious to know what the black fragments are below, which I often find embedded in the shale. Can someone please give me a clue about these? Some orthoconic cephalopods: The next two are the same fossil from different perspectives: Some bivalves: Bryozoans:
  2. Found this lovely pair of bivalves in Mimico Creek over the weekend and hoping to get some help on ID. It looks like either Colpomya or Cymatonota, based on images I've seen. Any ideas in this? Camille

    Upper Ordovician ichnofossil - bifungites (?)

    From the album: Camille's fossils - Georgian Bay Formation

    This dumbbell-shaped ichnofossil measures about 7.5 cm long, including the terminations -- considerably longer than the Ordovician and Devonian bifungites specimens described in Pickerill and Forbes, "Bifungites of Halli from the Ordovician (Caradocian) Trenton Limestone of the Quebec City Area" (1977).

  15. Recently had a nice excursion to Mimico Creek in Toronto, Canada, and am getting a little better at finding fossils. Here are five photos of three rocks, including a couple of close-ups. Will post a few more soon. Any help with ID would be appreciated! Camille
  16. I know crinoid "forests" are a dime a dozen, but still its nice to find one so packed . . . And some bryozoan pieces, my first that I can identify with a bit of confidence . . . but please correct if I'm mistaken. Cheers!

    More Ordovician finds at Mimico Creek

    Here are a few more of my recent finds at Mimico Creek. As always, I'm grateful for comments and IDs to increase my knowledge! By the way, I'm interested in connecting with others in the Toronto area to go on fossil hunts. Cheers! Camille

    Orthoconic nautiloid?

    Hello. Any comments on this find (3 photos below) at Mimico Creek in Toronto (species, anatomy, etc.) would be appreciated!

    What kind of crystallized fossil?

    If crinoid stem, why encased? (Found in Mimico Creek, Toronto)
  20. Hi everyone!!! I had the afternoon to myself today because William and Viola are at day camps this week and my husband was busy, so I decided to check out Mimico Creek (Georgian Bay Formation, Upper Ordovician) by myself for a couple of hours. I didn't make many finds, but the finds I did make were super-amazing (by my standards, anyway ). As I was walking along the creek when I first arrived, I was checking out the wall of rock when I noticed a pattern: After gently prying out the rock, this is what I found: Hooray!!!!!!!!!! My first Flexicalyme
  21. Hi all! I ventured out to Mimico Creek in Toronto, Ontario today to look for fossils. It was very cold and the rocks were frozen together, but I managed to pry out one large rock that has some interesting fossils on it. The fossils are from the Georgian Bay Formation (Upper Ordovician). The rock caught my eye because I could spot a few Cornulites flexuosus on one side, but after I brought it home and washed it, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the other side had even more interesting items on it! I'm not exactly sure of what I'm looking at, though, so I'm asking for your
  22. Hello there! I took advantage of the nice weather we've been having to visit Mimico Creek in Toronto, Ontario (Georgian Bay Formation, Upper Ordovician) yesterday afternoon. Here are some photos of specimens that I'd like help identifying - perhaps @Tidgy's Dad would like to have a look? Firstly - the whole rock which contains the bryozoans and the unknown black objects: Specimen #1: a nice branching bryozoan - perhaps Homotrypa? Specimen #2: a nice encrusting bryozoan (there are actually two of them) - perhaps Mesotrypa?

    Endoceras proteiforme

    From the album: Urban Fossils of Toronto (Georgian Bay Formation, Lower Member)

    Endoceras proteiforme, found in the Humber river area. Late Ordovician, Georgian Bay formation, Toronto, Ontario. Length is approximately 35 cm long with a nickel shown. This specimen is a portion of the whole fossil that is still to be excavated (it's just so difficult to dig out) and the remaining body of this thing is still there at the site where I got this.
