  1. Hello! I have been fossil hunting on and off for the last 10 years, although I would consider myself rather inexperienced in terms of fossil names and general knowledge. Anyways my dad and I found a very odd looking fossil on the river banks of Humber river in Toronto, Ontario, CA. We had no clue what it was and decide to bring it to the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) to see if one of the fossil guides could identify it - they surprisingly had no clue what it was either. Anyways, I was wondering if someone could help me identify what it might be? I attached a couple pictures below showing scale and some of the details of the specimen: (last picture is underside) *measurements are in centimeters* Thanks in advance for the help! -Em
  2. Rusophycus osgoodii

    From the album Urban Fossils of Toronto (Georgian Bay Formation, Lower Member)

    Rusophycus osgoodii (author unknown). Found in the Humber River area, Etobicoke, Toronto, Ontario. Georgian Bay formation, Lower Member. Late Ordovician. Trilobite burrow on a limestone with other trace fossils. Dime shown to show approximate size.
  3. Hello again!! I visited the southern part of Humber river in Toronto, ON on Oct.15.Sun. Actually, I went there on the way to go to see new homestay(Eventually, I moved elsewhere because of the distance. My ex-landlady urged me to move out 'cause she wanted to give my room to her daughter. The result is better 'cause of food quality. Last one was really terrible). Anyway, the total distance was about 58.6km for round trip(Actually, the distance was about 32km from my last homestay to Humber river. But I took the subway after got to the downtown when I came back to ex-homestay). I went southmost part of Humber river and headed along the upper stream. But, I couldn't find exposed formation, rather I saw just rocks, which is placed on sandbanks. I found ripple marks on the way heading upper stream. After that, I found many brachiopods, gastropods, crinoids' stem, bryozoa, and ichnofossils. But I wanted to find trilobites. That's why I thought that 'this time is wasted and felt really disappoint (and tiredness) So, I was almost giving up to find fossils and just follwed upper stream with taking a closer look on sandbanks. Then, I suddenly saw something on downward inclination! There were some exposed rocks(I'm not sure which formation is)! I went down right away and looked for some fossils. There were also brachiopods, gastropods, crinoids' stem, bryozoa, and ichnofossils. But this time, I found some cephalopods, too! (Though I couldn't make to find even one parts of trilobite) I'm not sure these species are Endoceras sp. or some other thing. Please let me know if you know the name of this specimen. These two attached on big rocks that I couldn't dettach it. The part of shell(phraginocone). The rest part of shell. The whole body image. I hit it in order to make big rock into small pieces and eventually I cracked it.. I yelled and felt really sad. This is another cephalopod. Although I couldn't find any trilobites at this hunting, I found some nice cephalopods and one graptolite(I forgot to take picture. But it's small) I'm planning to go to Mimico creek before I leave for Toronto. Maybe I'll go there after Novemver 12th. (After changing homestay, my Toronto life is getting way better than before! Though my friends are still stay in old place..) I'll post TWO more fossil hunting trip on Brechin and Bowmanville quarry with Crinus(Joe) on last weekends(He took me there! Thank you! )
  4. Lingulichnus verticalis

    From the album Urban Fossils of Toronto (Georgian Bay Formation, Lower Member)

    Lingulichnus verticalis (Hakes, 1976). Humber RIver area, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Late Ordovician, Georgian Bay formation, Lower Member. Oblong to tear shaped burrows made by linguliid brachiopod, species unknown. Approximately 15 cm across.
  5. Phycodes flabellus

    From the album Urban Fossils of Toronto (Georgian Bay Formation, Lower Member)

    Phycodes flabellus (Miller and Dyer, 1878). Georgian Bay formation, Lower Member. From the Humber River, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Late Ordovician burrows organized in a flabellate pattern. Approximately 10 cm across and in width.
  6. I found this crinoid head on a limestone that belongs to the Georgian Bay Formation, late Ordovician, today at the Humber River in Toronto, Ontario. Is this crinoid a Cincinnaticrinus or a Glyptocrinus? I have included a nickel for size reference.
  7. Isotelus maximus

    From the album Urban Fossils of Toronto (Georgian Bay Formation, Lower Member)

    Isotelus maximus (Locke, 1838). Curled specimen that would have been complete if the head wasn't missing. Spotted among rubble and the first big Isotelus specimen I've found at the Humber River area . Toronto, Ontario. Late Ordovician, Georgian Bay formation. Nickel at the bottom for scale.

  8. Slab Of Little Ripples Marks

    From the album Urban Fossils of Toronto (Georgian Bay Formation, Lower Member)

    Little ripple marks caused by the gentle currents on the shallow late Ordovician sea floor of Toronto. Georgian Bay formation, Humber member(?), Humber River area, Toronto, Ontario. Limestone slab, the coin is a quarter at the bottom for scale. Hmm, I'm beginning to decide if I should have taken this home with me today. Also at the bottom are two clam negative casts: a Whiteavesia and a Modiolopsis.

  9. Ever since summer vacation started I have been free to explore the Humber River area and made frequent hunts there in the late Ordovician rocks of the Georgian Bay formation of the city of Toronto. I realized that I did not have a substantial amount of material from this location that I discovered by accident, and so I decided and started to invest some time in exploring this particular location. Last year I only made seven visits, but I did not hunt productively, as I was in my first year of fossil collecting and as a result I had very little material from this location. I knew this location that I accidentally stumbled on had a lot of potential, considering that a great deal of the original exposures are still intact and there were few disturbances done by tractors, whereas compared to Mimico Creek a great deal of the original and actual exposures have been buried. I made three different visits, the first trip I believe was last week and the third today. On the first trip I only took home three specimens, but gradually as I hit the third visit the amount of my finds increased. On the first trip I only found at least three materials. The first thing that I discovered was a Treptoceras crebiseptum specimen. What made me surprised with this specimen was that this specimen actually had Cornulites sp. attached to it. I've never seen something like this in Mimico Creek. There were tubes of the worm attached on the orthocone and also the orthocone was not squashed flat because of the nature of the shale it is in. Actually, I noticed that certain shales in this location did not squash completely flat the orthocones that get preserved in them, which is very different from Mimico because most of the orthocones I find in Mimico shale are compressed. Sorry if I didn't carry any macro lenses and a good camera to capture the Cornulites, the location's flood from a recent rainfall made the place really mucky and wet and the flood waters were just starting to recede. Out of all the Treptocerases that I discovered on that trip, this was the only one that I decided to take home.
