  1. Scarce bryozoan. Dyscritella?

    Hi. Last month i've found this one on the Renmore Beach in Galway,Ireland. Early Carboniferous limestone from late Visean it's common all around Co Galway. I search for fossils in this county for 15 years and thats first fossil of this kind i got. Main specimens here are Siphonodendrons, Lithostrotions, Productids and many more brachiopods, corals, crinoids and gastropods. This one here I hope is bryozoan Dyscritella sp. I didn't look to my Mc Coy book yet but the species is described in Geological Survey of Ireland catalogue.
  2. Today I spent about two hours near Lawrenceburg, Indiana collecting some Ordovician fossils. I had a lot of luck with collecting some great looking complete brachiopods that I believe might be Herbertella, but I am going to ask the experts @Herb and @Peat Burns on this formation and see if they can correct any mistakes or unidentified finds. Rafinesquina ponderosa Platystrophia? It was bryozoan heaven today, as shown by some of the pics below. One piece was extremely large. Trilobites Parts ? Gastropods- "Sinuites" Unknown ? And some very nice small hash plates that are probably my favorite fines of the day.
  3. My story will be a bit(could be too much) long, so I put this report separately from @Kane's report. I'm not sure I can do this or not 'cause this is my first time to write same topic from others'. If I should not do this, I apologize administrator for making bothersome Before I start my story, I convey my profound and huge gratitude to @crinus for taking me quarries(these travels were my very first visiting to not only quarries, but also Ontario's fossil site!) and giving a lot of nice fossils to me what he found, and to @Northern Sharks for giving a nice specimen to me what he found as well from Brechin quarry and organizing Bowmanville journey(I didn't know that until seeing from @Kane's report. I'm not sure that you set the all plans), and to @Malcolmt for giving a complete crinoid to me, which is my first complete crinoid possessing arms and stems, and finally to everyone that I've met on this travel for welcoming me *Plus - My report will be incomplete 'cause I don't know that much about Ontario's geological information and some species' scientific names. So, I'll appreciate greatly if you guys tell me about right information and help me to correct it I revised this post a loooot of times 'cause I realized that it was not report, but a proper diary(Too Much Information.. and still, it's like a diary..) Well.. Now then, I'll begin my long story with some pictures though I couldn't make to take that many pictures of quarries and people. As for the Brechin quarry, I forgot to take my phone and there was no time to take DSLR out from my bag. And as for the Bowmanville quarry, I was so concentrating to find fossils that I forgot to take pictures *Date : Oct.21&22.2017 *Location : Brechin quarry & Bowmanville quarry *Records of formation : Brechin quarry - D -----> Upper Verulam Formation(There was a "cluster" of fauna that I think it's different from below one. Color was bright grey and somewhat yellowish) DD -----> Middle Verulam Formation(Bluish and grey rocks with vurnerable condition) DDD -----> Lower Verulam Formation(Brown and grey rocks) DDDD -----> Upper Bobcaygeon Formation(Alternates between sublithogenic and medium calcarenitic limestone, but also includes some brown lithographic limestone and bluish fine-grained limestone in minor thicknesses)[*] [Buried under the ground] Middle Bobcaygeon Formation(Grey and brown, very fine grained to sublithogenic, sparsely fossiliferous limestone, with some fine-grained limestone in the upper part)[*] [Buried under the ground] Lower Bobcaygeon Formation(Brownish grey, fine- and medium-grained limestone)[*] (Reference - [*] Bobcaygeon formation - Weblex Canada. (n.d.). Retrieved from http://weblex.nrcan.gc.ca/html/001000/GSCC00053001579.html @Northern Sharks informed me! Thank you! ) Bowmanville quarry - D -----> Blue Mountain Formation (I couldn't get there.) DD Upper Lindsay formation DDD Level 2 (?) DDDD Level 3(?) - Lower Lindsay formation (Below as well. The quarry was so biiiiiig!!) - - *Geological Age - Middle Ordovician These all rocks are what I took. Maybe I took a lot of fossils even if it is only a small part of trilobites. I just so excited that I found Ontario's trilobites directly, not through internet store or pictures! Well.. Now I'm worried the weight.. Could I take these whole fossils?... I should have considered about it, not just collect unnecessary things by my instinct. It was not a clever move.. That crinoid(at 11 O'clock-wise) is not what I found these quarries. I found it from Scarbourough bluffers park before. To begin, the beginning of the day(Oct.21) I've met @crinus first at the very early morning of the day(For me. 'cause I'm not the early bird type). Actually, we met from Ebay. I won his two auction and I asked him that would you wait for me until I get to Canada in order to reduce shipping cost. Then, he offered me to go to quarries with him! Anyway, we arrived there around at 8:30 AM and there were 4 or more people had already arrived. I've met @Malcolmt and two other people(Sorry, I can't remember the name. My poor memory..) on near the greenish and bluish pond in the quarry. After handshaking, @crinus and I went to the piles of rocks, which is near the pond. We climbed up the piles of rocks and met @Northern Sharks on there. He found one complete Calyptaulax sp. and dropped it from his hand while we were greeting each other(yet, fortunately, the trilobite was alive with small crack on the pygidium(if my memory is correct)) After the greeting, @crinus and @Northern Sharks went to another place and I remained there, which was that @Northern Sharks found a trilobite, and looked for trilobites with hammering big rocks. I found a horn coral, which is Lambeophyllum profundum Conrad, 1843, the cephalon part of Ceraurus sp. , and a loooot of brachiopods and so on It came from lower Verulam formation. This one is Lambeophyllum profundum Conrad, 1843( @Northern Sharks and @FossilDAWG informed me! Thank you! ) Ceraurus globulobatus? I don't know the exact name of this specimen.. This one maybe came from the middle Verulam formation because of its color. Though I found this from the lower Verulam formation area.
  4. Wenlock Edge, Shropshire, England

    This place is just like Wrens Nest Dudley i.e. Silurian. I like both places but find different things at each. Personally I have found more Trilobites bits at Wrens Nest. 1 - Arachnophyllum murchisoni Coral, top view 2 - Amphistrophia funiculata Brachiopod 3 - Favosites Coral 4 - Halysites Coral 5 - Heliolites Coral 6 - Kodonophyllum truncatum Solitary Coral 7 - Labechia conferta Stromatoporoid sponge 8 - Leptaena depressa Brachiopod 9 - Trepostome Bryozoa
  5. Bryozoa

    From the album Beltzville State Park

    Bryozoa Devonian Manhatango Formation Beltzville State Park, Beltzville, PA
  6. H.A.Nicholson on tabulata

    As is (almost) customary in the 19th century,some bryzoans are thrown in with the corals Pleurodictyum
  7. Some new finds

    Found some nice bryozoan assemblages, also found crystalized interior of something. Cephalopods often have that crystal formation interior. The right pict also has some gastropods.
  8. Bryozoa; Massive Form

    This is a common find at this particular quarry, this one P. collum has encrusted what appears to be a Chlamys cookei bivalve. After deciding to add this bryozoa, I had to do a lot of research. What I found is that I really knew nothing about bryozoans. I had always believed this to be an encrusting type bryozoa. Well, I found this species is one of the massive type byozoans. It initially encrusts the host, but then it builds layer upon layer, hence making it a massive form.

  10. Bryozoa introduction

    I came across this nice piece , written by someone who knows these animals. Expect no anatomical line drawings,but there are some nice pics in this one. rylandbryozoDENISIA0.pdf
  11. I was looking through a bunch of Thylacocrinus stem pieces looking for interesting encrusters for tradebait, and ran across something I didn't notice before. These photos are of 2 different stem pieces: My first thought was Constellaria, but (to my knowledge) that only occurs in the Ordovician, and is much larger. These are Middle Devonian (Kashong Fm.), and the whole image is less than 1 cm across, probably around 6 mm (I didn't have a measure handy). Anyone have any thoughts?

  13. Toronto Brachiopod And Bryozoan Help

    I found these two fossils from Mimico Creek in Toronto, Canada and they both belong to the Georgian Bay formation, late Ordovician. The first one I believe is a Pseudolingula, but I can't really nail it down to a species level. The other is a bryozoan, and I was thinking of Prasopora. What do you guys think? The brachiopod I found in shale, but the bryozoan in a limestone bed with other bryozoas. The brachiopod: The bryozoa:
  14. Scars On Cephalopod Fossils

    Hello, I wonder if anyone have seen something like this. Never mind the cephalopod ID, I'm interested in the scar-like structures on them. Here is cephalopod from early devonian of Czech Republic: and second one from different locality, but similar age: Here's one from the shales of late ordovician (Bohdalec formation, I think this corresponds with lower Katian) Not sure if the devonian and ordovician "scars" are the same thing, but they do look similar. At first I thought it was a bryozoan colony, but the shape is too regular. My best guess is it might be traces of some brachiopod similar to Philhedra, but I'm not very convinced. Thanks for any ideas. Ondrej
  15. I thought I would share some of the bryozoans that i collected at the PCS Phosphate Mine in Aurora, NC.
  16. Bryozoa Or Coral?

    This found on the "heavy rock" after soaking. Its 7mm long and less than 1mm wide. Looks Bryozoan to me and possibly Crustopora I think. Any ID would be great. Area is ordovician.
  17. From the album Irish Coral algae and Bryozoan

    Was long the "heavy" rock and came off with nothing attached. 2mm across and black shaped it what it looks like from the side.

    More detailed view of the top view of a rock found on a beach Co Waterford Ireland. Has been soaked in vinegar and slowly showing up more details. Area is know for mid-Ordovician fossils dating from around 470 million years ago. The rock is13*10*6 cm. Very heavy and seems to be more like a fine compacted ash than limestone. There is a shell in it that can be seen on the left, corals and outlines can also be made out. Quote from GSI for area "The mix of useful animal groups makes this an important site for biostratigraphical correlation within the Ordovician Period, both in Ireland and internationally. It is even more important because the animal species present at Tramore were biogeographically differentiated into different faunal provinces in older rocks, and the site will be very important in understanding the breakdown of the faunal provinciality within the Iapetus Ocean that once separated northwest Ireland from southeast Ireland. Tramore appears to have been a key site for the early migration of North American species into the Anglo-Welsh (and Irish) area."
