  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. Crinoid (?) Fossil ID Needed

    Found this the other day in Eastern Ontario and I'm not quite sure what it is. I asked on reddit and someone suggested it could possibly be a crinoid holdfast, but I wanted to get a second opinion just to be sure. Ordovician, about 2.5cm in diameter.
  4. Help identifying fossils

    New fossil enthusiast here. On my first few trips I found these in the Humber River and Etobicoke Creek and would like some help identifying them. 1. I think this is a trilobite?
  5. Is this pyrite disease?

    Hi guys I recently found this nice sized Pholadomorpha pholadoformis at the Humber River in Etobicoke, Ontario. It belongs to the Georgian Bay formation and is late Ordovician in age. The specimen has pyrite in addition to the black film. Does this fossil have some sort of pyrite disease to it?
  6. So I have been looking at my collection and it baffles me whether these two specimens are the same species with just different growth forms due to their deposition environments or are they entirely different species from each other? These stromatoporoids both come from the same locality (Streetsville, Mississauga, Ontario) in the Upper Member of the Georgian Bay formation, late Ordovician. Can anyone provide me with any PDF on late Ordovician stromatoporoids so I can nail down the differences between Stromatocerium and Labechhia? On the site where I collected these, I have also found mounding round stomatoporoids ranging around 4 inches to over 1 ft in diametre. I think this must be Stromatocerium. With the stromatoporoid with the prominent mamelons I have found it encrusting Prismostylus sp. specimens on the locality (what an odd association). This stromatoporoid, from my experience with the locality, usually just grows over the size of an open hand. Is this Labechia, the one with prominent mamelons?
  7. Shrimp's collection

    Hello everyone I have a pretty small collection, so I thought why not share it since it would only take a few posts? First up, these are my only self collected fossils. From walking along the Humber river in Etobicoke, which puts them in the Georgian Bay formation I believe. I would love some more information! Sweet little orthocone is why I took this one home. The back of the rock which shows an imprint of somebody's shell. There may be some other stuff going on in the matrix here but I've got absolutely no idea. Another orthocone with siphuncle pic if it helps with identification.
  8. Hello, I am new here, but very happy to find this forum. I found this rock while digging in my garden. I am in Ontario, Canada, close to the shores of lake huron. It may be nothing, but this rock looks like it is part of a petrified bone. I would love for some insight.
  9. Hi there, I found a number of fossils in the riverbanks of the Don River in Sunnybrook Park in Toronto, Ontario Canada. Here is a google maps link to the spot where these fossils were located. It is just north of where the pin is dropped. https://goo.gl/maps/yBbyfVTwHY3SGbbM8 I've attached images of the fossils I found and I'm looking to ID them. I'm wondering if someone could also point me in the direction of some further reading about the geology in this area. Thanks very much!
  10. 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
  11. 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...
  12. Hello once again! Upon closer examination of some items I recently collected from Etobicoke Creek in Mississauga, Ontario (Georgian Bay Formation, Upper Ordovician), I have found a couple of items I'd like your thoughts on. Item #1: Found on the same rock as a monoplacophoran (Cyrtolites ornatus), the unknown item is tucked underneath some matrix: View of the whole rock: Close-ups of the unknown item: Continued...
  13. Hi everyone! I found this piece yesterday at my new spot along Etobicoke Creek here in Mississauga, Ontario (Georgian Bay Formation, Upper Ordovician). It's a bryozoan of some sort with some crinoid stems on it, along with an imprint that I think is either a Cruziana ichnofossil or a weathered crinoid stem imprint - what do you all think? I've boxed the imprint in red. Thanks in advance! Monica Views of the imprint: View of the other side of the rock/bryozoan: Close-up of the bryozoan:
  14. Wondering what these fossils are?

    Found these fossils recently and was wondering what fossils they could be two weren't really sure even are fossils
  15. I was wondering if anyone new any spots to find some fossils near the Kawartha Lakes area? I'm in the area and wanted to try to fine some
  16. 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: cephalon (with a nice Ambonychia radiata bivalve next to it) and a chunk of thorax (circled in red) Flexicalymene granulosa: 2 cephala (one is quite large and the other (if it is a F. granulosa cephalon - I'm not sure if it is) is small and is circled in red), 2 pygidia (circled in red), and 1 slice through a thorax (circled in red): More to come...
  17. can’t figure out what I found

    Hi I am jacob, was wondering if someone could help ID or have an idea what this could be. i found this on shore of Lake Superior tarrace Bay Area, 3 inches below surface of small-med sized round rocks( o ya if it looks like little dried blood on back cause I cut myself on broken glass while looking for it)
  18. Horse tooth?

    Our grandkids first found this by the lake, Lake Huron. Ontario, canada side. We have been told our lot had a horse trail that ran through it, possible even used for horse races. Interested if this is an ancient horse tooth? Bison is another possibility as this had been a wooded area near the lake. Thank you. We are always looking for interesting rocks and stones and were curious when we found these. I have more photos.
  19. Another classic trip

    Another decent haul over the last few days. Bunch of nautiloids and whatnot, a couple mussels. These were my favourites from the last 2 days in the river. This was a biiiiig nautiloid, and after cleaning it I realized there were two of them! wowowowo! (Sorry the picture didn't turn out quite that nice) This is probably one of my highest quality specimen so far, although it did break near the end when extracting it from the matrix.
  20. Crinoid (?) - found in yard

    Found in my yard in Dorchester, Ontario on the Thames River. I've found several of these in my yard. Is it a crinoid? I'd sure love to know what an experienced fossil hunter would call it, as well as what era it might be from. Looks like there is one large one through the rock, with other little things in there.
  21. 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:
  22. Presquile park fossil day

    Hello everyone. On the long weekend me my daughter and my partner went out to the rock beach near by to do some fossil hunting and this is what we found. I am new to collecting and would appreciate some advice on cleaning them up.
  23. Is this part of a trilobite?

    Hi guys, I am not very good at identifying fossils yet. Its my main goal to find trilobite fossils because I think theyre really neat and I am wondering if these are possibly sections of a trilobite. I dont think there is a lot to go on but I was extremely impressed by the speed and ease that was required to identify my last find (thank you very much Kane!). There are two fossils, one is orange-y and the other is a darker grey and harder to see.
  24. Help with "Formosa Reef" fragment

    Hi everyone! I was just looking through some of my fossils yesterday, and I noticed the following item on one of the rocks I collected from "Formosa Reef" in Ontario, Canada back in March. These rocks are from the Amherstburg Formation and are Lower Devonian in age. Could this be a trilo-bit? Or is it something else? I'll tag @piranha and @Kane to see if they have any ideas. Thanks in advance for your help! Monica The whole rock with the unknown item circled in red: Close-ups and different views of the unknown item:
  25. Today I was trying to learn more about Mammoths and Mastodons found in Southern Ontario because of my spearhead in my other topic that my grandpa gave me, and also I don’t really have much Cenozoic fossils in my collection. So when I was looking I found a page made by the University of Waterloo which is about 5 hours from my home town, and it had a page about Mammoths and Mastodons of southern Ontario, it also had a map out of all the finds from these animals in Southern Ontario. So I looked and surprisingly there where two sites just North of my hometown of Dunnville, which where both about 12 minutes from my house. I found the location odd because mostly every rock in my area is Devonian and Silurian, but that area is an exception. So in that area North of Dunnville in 1869 and 1911 two Mastodon skeletons where found, so sometime this Month I’m going to see what I can find in those places, as they haven’t been touched in for 100 years because of all the fossils hunting is done in the fossil filled Devonian and Silurian deposits of Dunnville. I will post what I find there, and below is a link to that website and a photo of a description of one of the specimens from 1869.
