  1. This is a work in progress, a kind of "master list" of trilobite species found in Ontario according to the available literature. In some cases, stratigraphy and taxonomic names have been modernized. Correlations are added where it is expected that species found in equivalent strata could be found in Ontario rocks. I have not included trilobites from the Hudson/James Bay area as there are a number of species there that still are in need of formal description. There are also a number of uncertainties that require more literature support before they are included here. I'll update this as more res

    A few Fossils from recently

    Hello everyone, thanks for letting me join the site! I'm an amateur fossil hunter from Toronto who has made a few expeditions in the past months. I've found a few fossils of interest that I'd like some help identifying. Below are links to photos of the fossils in question on my iNaturalist page, along with some additional details. Thanks all in advance! The following were all found along the Don River in Toronto. 1. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/68570190 2. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/68573964 3. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/685701

    Fossil sponge?

    Phylum Porifera (sponge) M. Odovician Bobcaygeon Formation Kirkfield, Ontario. Cananda 4.5 cm long This is another from an old collection as found. Wrapped with a number tag to match a hand writ-in entry. The sponges I have shows some formation. I will put it in the ultrasonic cleaner. What do you think, do the come smooth? Bob
  5. Hi, I found 2 large fossils on th e shores of Lake Erie Ontario and I do not have a clue what they are. Both of these fossils are approximately 24" in diameter. Can someone identify them?
  6. Well, since moving to Ottawa, I haven't had the chance to go out fossil hunting. There wasn't a whole lot of info on the web about the geology here. So my wife and I decided to buckle up and find a spot ourselves (without any hammers or chisels). We tend to be very lucky people, but I was surprised by the THOUSANDS of trilobites we came across in a matter of 20 minutes. We were on the shoreline of the Ottawa river, we found a certain type of shale that was just crawling with them. If any lucky soul goes to the spot where we left all the remnants of our hunt, they will sure be having a good day

    A fossil rock from Lake Ontario

    Can you please help me ID the fossil rock in the picture? Also would like to know anything about it you can share. I found it on the shore of Lake Ontario this afternoon. Thanks in advance!
  9. I found it in a gravel near the road. Please help me identify it.

  11. Hi everyone! The last few times I went out fossil hunting, I tried to find new exposures along Mimico Creek in Toronto. All of these trips were unsuccessful, so I thought I'd try to find a new site along Etobicoke Creek instead. Today I checked out a new location and fossils were found - hooray!!! Here are some photos of what I found: (note that all of these fossils are from the Upper Ordovician Georgian Bay Formation) First, the trilobite pieces (@piranha - please let me know if I've identified them correctly - thank you! ): Isotelus maximus: cepha

    Another Quarry Find

    Found another cool piece at work today- is it anything special? It came out of a load of rubble from the Milton Quarry, in Milton, Ontario.
  13. 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 AN
  14. Hi 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:
  15. Today Deb and I made the two hour drive up to just outside the town of Formosa, Ontario, to have a look at the Formosa reef limestone, which is part of the Amherstburg Formation. This road cut is the type locality for this material, and it was humbling to be at the exact same location that researchers of yesteryear such as Ludvigsen and Fagerstrom derived their material that formed the basis of their published work on it. Here are some shots of the road cut. Hardly does it justice. This represents a single, massive biohermal knoll. I've wanted to visit this site for a while now, h
  16. 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
  17. I had mentioned in prior posts that I had found a large trilobite (Isotelus apparently) and I just got it back from Malcolm so I wanted to post pics. I definitely wish there was less damage but the size is very impressive to me (about 8 1/2 inches long by 6 inches wide by about 1 inch high), so I really like this guy, especially since it is the first trilobite I found (earlier this year). The first pic is how it looked when I found it - it was covered in calcite and was barely recognizable (to me, anyway) as a trilobite. While part of me wishes it WASN'T covered in calcite, the fact that it

    Quarry Find

    Hello! Found these cool pieces while at work- they came from the Milton Quarry in Milton, Ontario, Canada. I am completely new to fossil identification, but am very interested to learn more! Can anyone tell me what these might be?
  19. I am posting some pics of my trip to Etobicoke, Ontario on the Georgian Bay formation, Lower Member. I only went a couple times to different localities in Etobicoke since the lockdown put a strain on my wanted public transportation service. I visited the Humber River and Mimico Creek. I only came home with 2 specimens from the Humber while I didnt take anything home from Mimico. This year's winter has been mild so that is why I believe there has not been any turn around for [good/unusual/extraordinary] material. I recall back in 2015, which had a rough and severe winter, generated

    Trilobite?

    Hi I just found this while fossil hunting Saturday and am wondering if it could be a piece of a Trilobite? And if it’s to hard to tell is there anyway I can prep it without breaking it to reveal what it is? Thank you!
  21. Note: This is a follow-up post to my original post of about a week ago. I found this trilobite fossil near Eganville, Ontario, Canada. When I first picked it up, I thought it was broken but then I noticed that it was just slightly rolled and the pygidium was curved downwards. I have already posted a couple of pics of this Isotelus as found, but now that I have had it prepped (thank you Malcolm), it looks even better so I thought I would share.

    Partial Trilobite Fossil Found

    Hi - this is my first post to this group. I found this partial trilobite fossil this past summer in Ordovician limestone near Eganville, Ontario, Canada and I am hoping that someone here can help me identify the trilobite species it belongs to. This piece measures 3.5 inches in length by a little over 2.5 inches wide and I believe it is the pygidium and most of the thorax (so a little more than half of the full trilobite). Also, it has a little over 1/2 inch in depth, so it is not completely crushed flat. I would have much rather found a full trilobite - and I do have a full tri
  23. Hi everyone, I found this fossil in Eastern Ontario. I was wondering if anyone can identify the fossil. I don't think it's a trilobite. I'm also wondering if it can be extracted. I believe it's in limestone. Thanks!
  24. My daughter found this small piece washed up on the beach. It is apprx 1/4 inch thick and has a grover through top. It was found on Beach 6 of Wasaga Beach Ontario.
