    Bryozoan, ordovician

    Hello guys! I did some cleaning in the backyard in Deux Montagnes, 10 km North of Montreal. In a piece of rock I found some fossils of mostly bryozoan. Could you suggest what time these could be? I guess it is near Ordovician. It is sedimentary, 2 layers of such sediments, between them there is quartz or silicium rich sedimentary layer . The layer on the top is fragile, layers bellow are hard. 1, 2. 3, 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

    Help ID

    I found this specimen in Laval, on the South shore, West side. There was a fall there, next to the river there is a mixture of different layers. The time should be after Ordovician or late Ordovician. The rock is black, on very thin flat layers. Some layers are very hard / silicates/ other are fragile, mud - coal . Initially I expected it to be nautiloid. But when I did the pictures I rejected it. 1. Both parts 2. 3. 4. Side view - both parts 5. Cleaned (lower part)
  3. Hello again guys! This specimen is more special. Initially I took it because I saw a nautiloid in it. Totay I found there is also a trilobite inside it. Then I started to suspect if the Nautiloid part is not also the same trilobite. It is the same layer as yesterday, same place. Probably middle - late Ordovician. Found near boul. DesSources, on the shore of the river between Laval and Montreal. #1 #2 #3

    2 Trilobite heads (Cephalon)

    Hello guys! So far I don't find many trilobites. What I find usually is some peace of the trilobite. Today I was lucky to find a piece that has 2 heads/ cephalon/ of trilobites. These are small The rock speciment was not on its original place, it was near the shore, but still it match to what else we have on that place. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6

    Nautiloid Cephalopod Ordovician

    Hello guys! Today I visited antother place between Montreal/ Laval, on the North shore of Montreal. Spectacular place, many fossils. But the mostly found is a nautiloid/ cephalopod. I've seen such speciments already, however on this place there were so many of them, can't compare it with other places that I visited. In addition, other specimens before were spread out of their original position. Here I have all in one place, the original place . all specimens #1, #2 , #3 N3 #4
  6. Today I found another example of Conulariida. Location: Ile Bizard, North Shore, near Laval. #1 #2 - the first 2 pictures are from the site where I found it #3 #4 #5 #6

    Ordovician, circular

    Hello guys! I would like to hear your oppinion on these circles. I was suspecting for amonites, but it could be just a Bryozoa. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9

    Pre-Cambrian colision

    My next question is a difficult one. There was a colision . In the beginning I was suspecting a fall. Then I suspected a meteor. And I was almost convinced about meteor. Then, today I visited the place for the 3-rd time and I found that some layers are folded. So if there was a meteor, the layers should not be folded. Therefore - it was a simple colision between South and North platforms. ( or it was between Canadian platform with oceanic shelf. ) In such small place I see a very solid bottom - bed rocks - made of sandstone / possible Potsdam/. First layers - almost no life.

    Silurian or Devonian

    Hello guys! Please assist for dating of such rocks. I suspect it is Silurian, but it could be also later Devonian. I find plenty of these here like pieces of rocks. Gray-blue - in color, very hard. It is lile a cement, but harder than cement. And it has lot of organic materials inside - mostli marine plants or animal. The diameter of the stems is 3-4 cm and more. N.1 N.2 N.3 N.4 N.5 N.6 N.7 N.8 N.9 N.10 - here we see som

    Ordovician brachiopod

    Please help to identify what kind of Brachiopod is this: N.1 N.2 N.3 N.3 N.5 N.6
  13. When I found this small piece - I was sure it is a brachiopod... But now after looking on many other things, I am sure it is not a brachiopod. I am thinking about the base of a coral. Please help to identify it. This should be Ordovician. N.1 N.2 N.3 N.4 N.5 N.6 N.7

    Hello again, here are some pictures of corals that I find in the rock. Origin - near Montreal, exact location is unknown, because I find this rock in the park, it is not clear where exactly it came from. Should not be far from Montreal area. N.1 N.2 N.3 N.4 N.5 - Mollusca or Brachiopod

    Tribrachidium - Precambrian

    Hello again guys. Today I walked again on my places, and I payed more attention ot pre-ordovician layer.. Ordovician - as we can see it - it is full of life. But just 1-2 layers below , there is almost nothing. Except Tribrachidium . This seems to be the main finding that I have, the rest is pretty much mud and nothing else. So Tribrachidium: this look like snail , the snail without andy shell.. And it has 3 brachidiums - 3 internal structures that seems to be symetrical between each other. N.1

    Unknown Ordovician Fossils

    Hey I am currently going through and reorganizing my collection when I came across these that have no Id information, I was wondering if I could get some help with these fossils. The first was sent to me by a friend in Montreal, QC, and was collected on the south shore. Other than that, no information came with it. I think its an endocast from a snail shell. The second and third I collected personally, and they are from the Hull formation in Ottawa, ON. The second is a brachiopod, but I don't know the species. Finally, the third is also from the same site, and is about 2 cm long.
