Took our 4-year-old on a little fossil hunting trip to Craigleith, Ontario today. She had a couple nice finds (the kid knows a trilobite pygidium when she sees one!) but we were really hoping to find a whole bug. We were in luck! I’m so pleased with this find. I was looking through broken slabs of shale, prying it apart with my hands, and this little dude was just sitting inches away watching me! I think it’s pseudogygites latimarginatus again.
Greg.Wood posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this little guy last weekend in the Whitby formation (Upper Ordovician) of Craigleith, Ontario. Any ideas? Did a small amount of searching and to me it looks like Triarthrus eatoni.
I feel like I'm behind this but is it true that what was called the Whitby formation in southwestern Ontario is now called the Blue Mountain formation? Does anyone know the real story behind what happened officially?
