  1. Hypostome?

    Hello, my friends. This specimen comes from a wonderful hash plate, maybe my favourite hash, that was kindly sent to me by Ralph, @Nimravis It's from the Southgate Hill Road Cut, St.Leon, Indiana, USA and is Cincinnatian (Late Ordovician) in age, probably the Waynesville Formation, judging by the brachiopod assemblage. But could be Liberty. Is this a trilobite hypostome? And if so, is it likely to be Flexicalymene? The piece has several Flexi bits on it; a couple of pygidia and some free cheeks, the reverse has three cranidia. But I think there are Isotelus fragments present, too. The specimen is 5 mm wide. Thank you very much as always for any opinions and help.
  2. Hypostome?

    First of all, is this a hypostome? If so, is it a damaged one from Isotelus? Found in the Kope Formation, Ordovician along AA Highway in Kentucky. Thanks for looking at it and giving an opinion. Mike
  3. Trilobite hypostome ID

    Any idea what species of trilobite this comes from? (Or correct me if I’m wrong in my assumption that it is a trilobite hypostome) Tully, NY
  4. Hello everyone! I wanted to share some good news with you all... On Monday, March 16, 2020, I visited "Formosa Reef" in Ontario (Amherstburg Formation, Lower Devonian) for a little fossil hunt. One of the rocks that I found at the site had a trilobite piece that @piranha identified as the hypostome belonging to the trilobite Acanthopyge contusa. When I asked him if he knew of any museum/researcher who might be interested in my specimen, he suggested that I contact the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), and so I did. First, I emailed David Rudkin, and this is what he said: "Thank you very much for getting in touch and offering to donate your splendid little Acanthopyge hypostome! I've been retired from the ROM for 3 years now and am not permitted to act on behalf of the Invertebrate Palaeontology section, but I am copying these messages to the Curator and Collection Manager with my recommendation to accept your generous offer." "Acanthopyge contusa is indeed a relatively rare component of the Formosa trilobite fauna and the ROM collections do not hold any specimens of the elusive hypostome. Like your contact on The Fossil Forum I've not seen one from Ontario before, so your discovery is quite exciting ... at least for a self-professed trilobite geek such as myself! I'm hoping that my ROM colleagues, Dr Caron and Ms Akrami, will follow my recommendation to accept your offer, but I must leave the final decision in their hands." Just last night, I received two consecutive emails from Maryam Akrami (the current Invertebrate Paleontology Collections Manager at the ROM): "Thank you for sending the images and the information for the trilobite specimen. I am glad to let you know that we will accept your offer of donation. Just want to let you know that the ROM is closed until at least 5th April. If you would like to ship the specimen to us now, I can give you my home address. Once we have the specimen, I will send you a letter acknowledging your generous donation to the ROM." "Following up on my previous email (below), given the current situation and the advise against leaving our homes for non-essential reasons, perhaps it would be a good idea to wait till things return to normal and then ship the specimen to us. I hope that would be ok with yourself." So, once the ROM is up and running again, I'll be handing over my little Acanthopyge contusa hypostome to the ROM! I'll update this thread as soon as the donation has been completed. Here are pictures of the specimen in question: Thanks for reading, everyone! Monica
  5. Help With Iowa Trilobite

    This past weekend, I had a chance to collect a well known roadcut outside of Clermont Iowa. The site is Ordovician in age and exposes the Clermont section of the Maquoketa Formation. one of the interesting pieces that I collected was this tiny trilobite. As you can see from the picture,There is not much to go on however the hypostome is preserved. I am hopeful the Trilobite will be complete and was wondering if anyone might know what species it is/could be. Any help is appreciated.
  6. About a month ago, I headed out on two fossil trips to the well-known St. Leon roadcut in Indiana. I was hunting in the Liberty formation (late Ordovician) with the sole goal of finding some nice trilobites (which I definitely achieved!). Along with multiple rare trilobites, I was able to find some excellent examples of other fossils. The spoils were totally awesome, and I am itching to go back. I hope you enjoy. Best for last.
  7. I have a hypothesis

    Over a month ago I found what I believe is my first hypostome near House Springs, Missouri. But it is much larger than the other trilobite pieces that I have found in the area. Since then I have been to the same roadcut and found what I believe to be two larger trilobite tails that might be something like Isotelus which may be the source of the hypostome. I just want other people's opinions if they think I'm on the track.
  8. Trilobite Hypostome

    Found this in pile of waldron shale, could this be the ventral part of a Trimerus trilobite, possibly part of the hypostome? I searched the web for any documents to show a hypostome from that trilobite, but no luck. Packy
  9. Whose Hypostome Is This?

    I am trying to prep a trilobite hypostome, but I can't figure out what species it belongs to. It was found in Forestville, MN.
