  1. Recently returned from a near week-long dig with a field comrade in the Quebec City area, visiting many sites, dealing with torrential downpours, sleeping rough, and covering roughly 2,000km of road. It was a fantastic time with a good friend and quite productive. I came back with about six flats of fossils. I'll show a few of them. None of them are prepared yet, and I have a lot of work to do! I'll show them in their raw field state for now. The Neuville Formation is upper Ordovician, comparable to the Cobourg/Lindsay Fm in Ontario. The faunal composition is different, though. T

    Crinoids - type and dating

    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

    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

    Ostracoderm Fragment?

    This is another specimen I would like to share from my long-ago collected specimen box. It is my recollection that this was found while walking on exposed riverbed along the north shore of the St. Lawrence River somewhere near Quebec City. The rib-like grooves as seen on the top view are what caught my eye, but after picking up and examining it more closely, the cross-section really got my attention. This spoke "structural design" to me. Although we've certainly all seen unusually shaped rocks that didn't mean anything, this, along with the grooves on the top side, it made me think

    Help with Identification

    Having recently retired, I'm finally going back to try to catalog some of the specimens I've collected over the years, but have so far not been able to identify. The subject specimen was one collected (to the best of my recollection) back in the 1990's while walking on exposed river bed along the north shore of the St. Lawrence River just south of Quebec City. The specimen is a little over 30 mm long and weighs 30 grams. The distinctive features are the rounded end, flap-like feature folded on the end, and circumferential rings. Below are photos with several views, with the oblique view sh
  14. While doing some prep on some Neuville Fm material (U. Ordovician, Quebec), on the slab I was working I bumped into this. Roughly 5 mm wide. I am thinking crinoid bit, but not quite sure. It doesn't seem to match the main four found there, or possibly a component piece that baffles my crinoid-poor knowledge! ***EDIT: Looking over the faunal lists, the star-shaped plate makes it a good match for a rhombiferan.***

    A Week in Quebec

    I'm just easing back to regular life after a week of fossil collecting in the province of Quebec. We had a fantastic and highly productive time. There are a number of sites that I cannot mention publicly, and also some excellent specimens that I am sworn not to post anywhere, but I can show a few things. I haven't photographed everything yet, either. We collected mostly in the Neuville and Nicolet Formations. The first stop was Kingston, Ontario where we met up with a fellow fossil friend for a brief time. I obtained my own physical copy of Isotalo's book. I then meandered to a roc
  16. First sunny day of the week . Wife and kids getting slowly crazy while I have to deal with a higher than average workload from home. Hum ...time to steal a few hours with the two oldest ones and get back to the Nicollet Fm (ordovician ) nearby. This time Flexys did not make the cut , or none did with all parts intact ( except maybe one found by my eldest) . This Triarthrus Rougensis made my day though , the best (by far ) I found so far . Followed by another promising one later .2 and a half hours well spent! PS: wow , just noticed this is my first post since landing he
  17. Found these on Tuesday at the Hansen Brick Quarry in Laprairie which is just minutes from downtown Montreal. In addition, found a number of bivalves, gastropods, crinoid pieces, brachiopods, and a few partial and one complete Flexicalymene trilobite. Thought this might be a piece of nautiloid shell, but have never seen ornamentation like this. Not sure what this is. Thought it might be a bryozoan covering (something?).
  18. Hello everybody, I found many fossils when I was a child, and I never managed to identify some of them. It has been puzzling me for many, many years. I would be very thankful if someone could help me find out what these are and help me solve this mystery! The three unidentified fossils below have been found in the Minganie Regional County Municipality, Québec, Canada. They come from the Ordovician-Silurian period, at the boundary between the two periods I believe. The region is extremely rich in fossils. 1. Is it a tooth, a shelled mollusk,

    Any dinosaurs out of Quebec

    Hi All, I am travelling to Quebec in September and was wondering if there are any dinosaur fossils out of this location? A source I have read has said that No dinosaurs have been discovered here but wondering if anyone else has any input? Thanks
  20. Hi all, This little pygidium was found in the Pontgravé River Formation near St-Mathias, Quebec. This strata is part of the Richmond Group. As far as I can tell, this is a new occurrence of either Eomonorachus, Tricopelta or some other similar trilobite from the US. Here's a PDF that I found useful: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/237172420_Ordovician_Pterygometopidae_Trilobita_of_North_America What do you guys think? @piranha, your vast knowledge will surely solve this riddle in a second or two.. Cheers, Marc

  22. I am planning a trip to the eastern townships in Quebec and was wondering if anyone knew of some sites between Ottawa, Ontario and the townships that may have some fossils. I will most likely be avoiding the Island of Montreal on this trip, its just too crazy to drive through. I'm not sure if there are any sites along the way, but any info would be nice. Thanks in advance for the help
  23. These are a few of the pdf files (and a few Microsoft Word documents) that I've accumulated in my web browsing. MOST of these are hyperlinked to their source.
