    Trilobite Id?

    Hi everyone, We recently stumbled across this interesting specimen while combing through some rocks of the Verulam Formation (Upper Ordovician), just north of Manitoulin Island in Ontario. We initially thought trilobite, however we are now unsure, as there are over 30 segments of the thorax and they appear to be curved up towards the cephalon as opposed to down towards the pygidium. Any help is appreciated!

  4. I was able to fit in some prospecting for new sites while the missus had a week off from work. Obviously I couldn’t monopolize all the vacation as the main purpose was to visit a relative and lounge on a beach. Regularly accessible and productive Ordovician sites in Ontario are few and far between, mostly relegated these days to the biannual trip to the quarry in Bowmanville, or to the creeks around the greater Toronto area (GTA). Trilobite collecting in Ontario is massively curtailed by a confluence of factors sadly common in so many other areas: development, quarries that no lon

    This ones a keeper

    Contrary to what some people may suspect I actually collected other things besides cystoids and echinoderms this past summer. Here is a trilobite that I am quite fond of that was found back in July. It was found in a blast of Ordovician Verulam. Took me a good 1/2 hour to get it cut out. It was in a very large slab that was a bit awkwardly positioned and I could not move it by myself. Both of my regular collecting buddies had already packed it in for the day so I was on my own to figure out how to get it out. Definitely worth the effort. It prepped up quite nicely in my humble opinion and best
  12. It is the last hurrah for me before the school year begins and I'm back riding the lectern. As some of you already know, I am due at a very special quarry near Lake Simcoe to collect with our intrepid @Malcolmt after his jaw-dropping Astrocystites finds. This space will record some of my journey there, and of course our time in the quarry. We made our way out from London going north by northeast this morning and took the back roads. Those of you who have traveled the Grey Highlands and Blue Mountains area know how breathtaking the scenery can be. We found ourselves in Craigleith by

    A first for me

    Well I was out hunting the Ordovician on Saturday and as it turns out I had a pretty awesome day. I found a plate with 5 flexicalymene trilos on it all essentially complete , a cyclocystoid complete with central plates, a partial piece of a cleiocrinus, a pleurocystites, a complete prone ceraurus with at least 5 small crinoid calyx on the plate, a bit mangled enrolled isotelus, a calyptalaux . You can see that fossils when they are found in the field are often nothing special to look at. Note that in the field I always circle what I am interested in with black sharpie marker (never leave home

    First Timer

    Well every now and then you get lucky and don't even realize it. Was out collecting on Sunday and found what I thought was a few exposed spines of a meadowtownella trilobote. To my surprise when I got home and prepped it , turned out to be something totally different.. Trilo was prepped using 200 mesh dolomite at 20 PSI with a .015 nozzel. Prep time about 15 minutes, very fragile but no consolidant , glue or restoration. Drumroll... as I have never found this species before at this location or anywhere else..... This was found on the surface of a good thous
  16. Here is a highly inflated 3-dimensional Homocystites sp that was found this past Saturday May 14 on a very cold rainy day. The only bright note to the weather was that the wet matrix made it a bit easier to see the fossils. This is from the Ordovician Verulam formation and was found in a new blast pile from the previous 7 days. The homocystites typically found is Homocystits anatiformis which is found in the Cobourg formation. This species is typically a little smaller and is under review as potentially being a different species. Homocystites has an ovate theca and a fairly long stem (mo
  17. I actually had an amazing day hunting in the Verulam formation near Lake Simcoe, Ontario, Canada on Sunday April 12th with my friend J. Even with his rock saw it took me three trips from the bottom of the pit to lug the rocks out. I figure about 200 pounds of rocks came home with me.The weather was perfect (18 degrees celcius but there is still ice and snow in areas ) I got to the site about 8:00AM and stayed till 5 PM. Two hour drive each way so I was beat by the time I got home. Also was a little worse for wear as I got a finger trapped between two heavy slabs. Throbbed for the whole day. C

    Cute Little Crinoid

    Got tired of prepping cystoids this morning so took a quick diversion to prep this little guy found on Sunday April 12, 2015 in the verulam formation near Lake Simcoe. Total length about 75 mm with a 10 mm calyx. Prepped under a scope with low PSI dolomite .010 nozzle, prep time about 20 minutes. Matrix was a crumbly shale which was field stabilized with cyanoacrylate. I believe it to be a praecupulocrinus but then again I am not the crinoid expert by any means so please jump in.....

    Unknown Ordovician Verulam

    Here is one for you knowledgeable folks. The fossil does not actually belong to me .The individual who found this specimen is a very experienced collector and has never seen this one before in either the verulam or the BobCaygeon. It was found last season in either the bottom of the verulam formation or the top of the BobCaygeon Ordovician formation near Brechin, Ontario Canada. We are generally calling this a cystoid or a crinoid. Some thoughts so far are (in order of our thinking) Balacrinus sp archeocrinus lacunosus Neoarcheocrinus Rare cystite Jump in with your thoughts
  20. Continuing from my last post, Sunday had me up bright and early heading towards Gamebridge, Ontario and the exposures of the Ordovician aged Verulam formation. I met Malcolmt at the quarry and we spent the better part of the day searching some recent blast debris as well as the "honey hole" area that he and Kevin had found all their goodies last year. Sadly, much of the material that they were searching last year has gone to the crusher now so the pickings were thin. I did manage to find a nice enrolled Flexi which Malcolm said he could clean up. I was worried it was incomplete but Malcolm say
