  1. Hello there! I was just organizing my Hungry Hollow fossils when I noticed this odd object. It looks like a small jaw with teeth, but I know that bivalves have "teeth" along their hinge so it could be that. Does anyone out there recognize the identity of this little piece? It's from the South Pit of Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario and it is from the Middle Devonian. Thanks in advance for your help! Monica
  2. Hello everyone! As in other places around the world, different regions in Ontario are beginning to loosen COVID-related restrictions, and that meant that a field trip to Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario was held yesterday. Viola and I jumped at the chance to visit a site that we haven't been to in almost a year, and we braved the sun and heat to find some cool items. I didn't bring my camera to the pit because I didn't want to get it dirty/dusty, but here are some photos of my favourite finds. I'll tag @Kane and @Northern Sharks - perhaps they'd like to have a look-see at what I found. Item #1: A nice branching coral - Trachypora, I think. Item #2: A Favosites coral that's not in the best condition, but I'm thinking that it has a squashed crinoid calyx on it (maybe)? I've circled the potential calyx in red, and provided a close-up photo of it. The third photo is the back of the coral colony for those who want to see both sides of the coral. More to come...
  3. I bought this from a box of unlabelled stuff that a dealer friend in the UK is gradually going through. Another friend IDd the coral as a Heliophyllum halli, perhaps from Hungry Hollow, which seems a good bet - I'm not very familiar with stuff from there though. Middle Devonian anyway. It was the epifauna that really interested me, especially this nice patch of the bryozoan Botryllopora socialis. (It also has other bryozoans, hederellids and cornulitids.) Scale in mm.
  4. Favosites sp. from the Devonian Hungry Hollow member in Arkona, Canada. One of the more interesting corals I've collected, I'm trying to narrow down the species if possible. Any ideas?
  5. Hungry Hollow echinoderm

    Hello there! This past Saturday, I went on a "field trip" to Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario (mid-Devonian in age), and I found one weird item. It's an echinoderm of some sort, but which sort? A crinoid holdfast? Something else? Please see the photos below and let me know what you think. (By the way - I didn't make it home from work in time to take photos in natural light today, so I apologize for the fairly poor photo quality - if it's sunny tomorrow I can get better pictures then. And I also apologize for my blue finger in the photos - my students and I were looking at cheek cells under the compound light microscope today and some methylene blue got on my fingers - oops!) One end showing the pentaradial symmetry: The other end not showing much: Side photos: Thanks for your help! Monica
  6. Arkona, Ontario

    These are some devonian finds from Arkona, Ontario, mainly from along the banks of the Ausable river. The formations exposed consist of the Arkona shale, the Hungry Hollow formation and the Widder formation.
  7. Found this one last week in the South pit at Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario. I did a bunch of searching but couldn't narrow this one down. Devonian age Widder fm Hungry Hollow member Measures 2.25 x 2.0 x 1.5 cm
  8. Greenops from Hungry Hollow

    Hello again! I have one more ID request (for now ). I received this Greenops as a gift, but I think I deleted the email which stated the exact location/formation information - does anyone recognize the matrix that it's on? And is it G. widderensis or is it G. arkonensis? I have a document stating that these two species have been found at Hungry Hollow (near Arkona, Ontario, Canada; mid-Devonian in age) - are there two different Greenops species found at Hungry Hollow or only one (widderensis)? Thanks so much! Monica I'll tag @Kane and @middevonian for this one
  9. Favosites from Hungry Hollow

    Hi there! I'm currently writing labels for my Devonian fossils, and I was wondering if someone out there can identify the following Favosites coral down to species? It's from the South Pit of Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario, Canada, and it's mid-Devonian in age. Thanks so much! Monica Top: Bottom:
  10. Arkona Crinoid prep

    Here is a Corocrinus calypso I found in the south pit at Hungry Hollow last fall (southern Ontario, Canada, Devonian age). In the past these were a common find in the Arkona formation, but access to the productive outcrops is becoming rare. I stumbled upon this one on top of the northern end of the pit. Sitting there in ten pieces and eroding away, I was lucky to have found it before it turned to dust. The matrix is more solid than the usual clay which makes up the Arkona so I believe it was weathering out of a concretion. I glued the bits that obviously fit together and it ended up in a box with my other Arkona keepers. Two weeks ago I was looking through the collection and decided to prep one of the nicer chunks. After messing around for an hour or so I realized that everything fit together into one piece. Cool! There are some gaps as the edges are worn but I'll take it. Most of my prep experience has been on E. rana from Penn Dixie which are usually quite sturdy and forgiving (I'm not very patient but luckily have not ruined a fossil yet). With this probably being my favourite find to date, it was time to turn down the psi and take my time. I think it is coming along nicely after seven or eight hours of work. Planning to spend another seven hours on it this week to finish it off. Not a lengthy prep for some, but certainly my longest so far.
  11. Arkona South Pit

    Spent Sunday with two Forum friends on a dig at the south pit of Arkona. My focus was on the Hungry Hollow Member. We didn't come away with any showstoppers, but it was a nice, sunny day and not too hot. We saw a deer and her fawn, dragonflies with either a bright blue or green metallic sheen, biting deer flies, and wild raspberry plants ripe for picking. Spent this morning doing some preliminary cleanup abrasion of my finds. Fresh HH stuff from the layer tends to be pretty mucky, and it takes careful examination not to miss something good as it is really hard to make out detail. And then, when you take it home, that muck has dried and you wonder "why did I take this chunk of dirty rock home again?" A selection of some of the stuff now that I've done some abrasion:
  12. Proetid

    Just cleaning up a few finds from the Hungry Hollow Member (Mid-Devonian, Arkona, Ontario). I am awful at discerning between proetids based on certain fragments, so was hoping for an assist as to whether it is a Pseudodechenella or Crassiproetus. If memory serves, one has a bigger anterior cephalic brim. I can usually tell them apart if I have the pygidium (Crassiproetus has a more rounded, effaced one). I’m leaning more toward Pseudodechenella. Once the genus can be nailed down, I have a question about size ranges that I haven't come across in the literature. When measured around the curve of the glabella, I get 2.5 cm. That seems fairly large for examples I've seen elsewhere. That would have made this trilobite, whole, about 7+ cm (sag.). That seems a bit too big for most proetids I've encountered.
  13. Spent 8 hours yesterday mucking about in the Hungry Hollow Member, resorting to that section of the Widder Formation as there are no viable upper Widder outcrops at the moment. Nothing fabulous in terms of finds, but the HH Member is temperamental... High turbidity makes for a lot of fossils that are not hardy to come out as a puree. Corals dominate this stratum, at times making up more of the composition than matrix. It also means not much in the way of reliable bedding planes as most of this stuff comes out in chunks delineated by the corals. It can also be quite muddy/wet, and hard to pick out what's there. When it dries, it is not much better. I didn't take much in the way of field pics. I did, however, see an abundance of salamanders, which speaks to some measure of ecological health in the area given that they are among the more ecologically sensitive critters. I struck my own spot by digging out a lot of soil and roots. The only field pics. Corals being by far the most abundant, some of them can come out quite large. These I set aside in piles for other collectors.
  14. Hello everyone! Viola and I spent about 2.5 hours in Hungry Hollow's South Pit (mid-Devonian in age) yesterday afternoon. The weather was actually the most pleasant it has ever been for us at this location, but it was so mucky from recent heavy rains that we couldn't explore the whole pit for fear of getting stuck. We did, however, come away with some nice finds. Most notably, it was my best day for finding the small pyritized goniatite Tornoceras - I collected 9, which is more than the sum total of what I've found in all of my visits prior to yesterday!!! I hope you enjoy the pictures Monica Two photos of the pit: Two photos of Viola collecting/playing in the mud: More to follow...
  15. Hi all! While I was looking through some of my fossils, I came across the specimen below, and I think it's a new little coral for me! Does anyone have an idea as to its identity? It appears to be a tabulate coral, but if anyone could let me know its genus and species then I'd be much obliged! It's from Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario, Canada (mid-Devonian in age). Thanks in advance for your help! Monica
  16. Hello there! I was able to visit Hungry Hollow's South Pit (near Arkona, Ontario, Canada - age is mid-Devonian) yesterday - boy was it hot!!! Viola and I spent three hours surface-collecting before we decided to call it quits and head to our air-conditioned car. We found our usual stuff, but I'd like your input on the following two items: Item #1 front and back: a type of Favosites coral - perhaps placenta? It's a lot flatter than my other Favosites finds, and you can even see what I think are some crinoid holdfasts on top, and an echinoderm plate (perhaps from a crinoid calyx?) on the back!!! Item #2 front and back: I have NO idea whatsoever!!! It's smooth, and I can't see evidence of holes/pores, but it is kind of hilly - what do you think? Thanks in advance for your help!!! Monica
  17. Hello everyone! This past Saturday, July 28, 2018, Victoria @VTinNorthAB and I met up with our families in Arkona, Ontario in order to do a little fossil-hunting together. It was a wonderful day - it was warm with a mix of sun and clouds and we all came away with some great finds! Please enjoy the photos below! Viola (my 7-year-old daughter) and Aviva (Victoria's 7-year-old daughter) in front of the falls at Rock Glen Viola and Aviva climbing a wall of Hungry Hollow's South Pit, searching for button corals and other goodies Adina (Victoria's 4-year-old daughter - it was her birthday!) and Aviva climbing the same wall - Adina was a trooper! Adina and Aviva posing for a picture post-climb Victoria fossil-hunting high up in the South Pit More to come...
  18. Hungry Hollow Access?

    Hi, I've noticed lots of people have been to Hungry Hollow, but I've read online that you can't go there without being part of a group/club? Is this true? Can I go there without being part of a club but still part of a group, such as a university group?
  19. Hungry Hollow epibiont help

    Hello everyone! This past Saturday, Viola and I braved the cold to do some fossil collecting in the south pit of Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario (Mid-Devonian). When I got home and washed up my specimens, I saw something interesting on one of the horn corals - I think it's a brachiopod - am I right? And does anyone know its identity? Thanks in advance for your help! Monica
  20. Hungry Hollow fossils!

    Hello all! It's a dreary day, so I'm trying to organize some of my fossils into my new display cabinets, and I was hoping to get some help with identifications. All of the fossils below were found in the south pit of Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario. The age is mid-Devonian. Thanks in advance for all of your help! Monica Photo #1: Definitely a coral, but which one? A type of Favosites, perhaps? Photo #2: Another coral - perhaps Alveolites goldfussi? Photo #3: Still another coral - perhaps Platyaxum frondosum? Photo #4: I have no idea what this brown thing is - help! Photo #5: A trilobite pygidium - can anyone tell which trilo? Photo #6: A brachiopod - no idea which one... Photo #7: Three brachiopods - again, I don't know their identity/ies Photo #8: Two brachiopods - I used to think they were both Devonochonetes scitulus, but up close they appear to look a little different to me - what do you think? Photo #9: The back of the rock from Photo #8 - any idea what those black fragments are?! Photo #10: A pyritized bivalve (thanks, Adam @Tidgy's Dad!) - again, I'm at a loss as to what its identity is Photos #11 and #12: A Mucrospirifer brachiopod, but I'm wondering - is that the lophophore that I see inside of it, or is it just the valve that's been crushed inwards?
  21. not a a fossil?

    Hello all, I'm new to the forum and would like some help with this find please. Several times I have visited Hungry Hollow and upon breaking a rock open find a "worm-like brown mark." Sometimes there is dark brown soft material on the line as can be seen in the picture. Would someone please help in idenfiying what this is? Thanks Chuck
