Monica posted a topic in Fossil IDHi all! Yesterday I visited Formosa Reef here in Ontario (Amherstburg Formation, Lower Devonian), and I found these weird circular imprints on a few rocks - does anyone know what they are? @Kane Thanks a bunch! Monica photo with ruler for scale: close up photos:
Hi everyone! I was just looking through some of my fossils yesterday, and I noticed the following item on one of the rocks I collected from "Formosa Reef" in Ontario, Canada back in March.

Thanks in advance for your help! Monica The whole rock with the unknown item circled in red: Close-ups and different views of the unknown item:
Hi all! After reading about @Kane's autumn trip to Ontario's Formosa Reef (Amherstburg Formation, Lower Devonian), I was inspired to find it and check it out myself. With the help of Ludvigsen's 1986 paper entitled "Reef trilobites from the Formosa Limestone (Lower Devonian) of southern Ontario," along with Google Maps' Satellite View, I was able to locate the reef, so Viola and I made the 2-hour drive yesterday to search the site for some new fossils. Here's Viola standing atop the reef: This was my first find of the day - a rock with a brachiopod AND a gastropod in it - woohoo!!! This was one of Viola's first finds of the day and probably her favourite - a large and beautiful chunk of tabulate coral: Here is a photo of Viola and I just before we left the site after about 3 hours of fossil-hunting: Photos of the fossils to come...
