Just a quick post because this is somewhat of a rarity. About three weeks ago I was hunting fossils in my favorite Ordovician location up here in Ontario Canada with a few friends including Northern Sharks and I found my first ever cyclocystoid. I cannot tell you how many 1000s of crinoid stems I have thought for a split second might be a cyclocystoid or edrioastroid. Finally picked up the real thing...... not an imposter. The segmentation in the ring is the giveaway. This one is in quite a good state of preservation and has had an initial prep under the scope with air abrasion. (40 micron do
Malcolmt posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI must admit that ceraurus is one of my very favorite trilobites. I have been hunting diligently to try to find a prone museum quality specimen for my personal collection. This is the best that I have been able to find so far (I have about 5 others that are all in the neighborhood of 80% complete). Although this is not shown in the pictures there is a perfect hypostome that I have exposed on the bottom of the specimen. On the plus side it is very inflated and 3 dimensional with no squashing.The area that I am hunting for these is very fragile shale that has only been recently exposed and it is
My friend QuarrymanDave here on the forum asked me to prep what looked to be an unusual trilobite from the veralum formation of Ontario. This is Ordovician . The prep is not finished, I still need to do the fine detail . Even though this is just a cephalon , I think it is an amazing little fossil. It is 31.3 mm at its longest and 22.0 mm at its widest. I have certainly never seen this species in all the times I have been to the location he found it in. It could very well be a rare paraharpes ottawaensis or equally rare dolichoharpes dentoni Please jump in with your identification......
