2020 Ontario Trilobite Hunting

Thanks, Scott! That would make this very exciting (and another Ontario first). It's in a bit of a rough shape, but I'll put it under the scope to see if I can get a bit more of the detail (and to determine if there is at least a base or not for the medial axial spine).

Hopefully! It looks like my calendar is virtually wide open at the moment.

Mystrocephala stummi were showing up fairly regularly today. On the longer rock, you can see his buddy Pseudodechenella sp.

Seems comparable to Trypaulites sp. Perhaps the most complete example I've found (i.e., more than just a pygidium). That being said, it was at the natural edge of the rock because of course. :rolleyes:

Lichid frags are getting harder to come by, but I have nearly a hundred samples now. :P 

 

A really crummily preserved hypostome and a bit of pygidium.

They may not be pristine complete specimens, but they make up for that in being very uncommon species.  Hopefully I will be able to make a visit next time I am up your way, whenever that is.  I've heard travel restrictions might apply until there is a COVID-19 vaccine, which is 12-18 months away, if we are lucky.

I'm hoping things will relax a bit by the time you're able to come up here, Don, as I do hope to have a few 'menu options" for site visits.  In terms of finding fragments, you're definitely right... I may be becoming spoiled on account of finding so many of them now!

 

Thanks, Adam. :) One way or another, some of these rostroconchs should make their way to Fes. ;)

What a nice, big gastropod!!!  Wow!  And I, too, like the rostroconchs - they're very cool-looking molluscs :dinothumb:

Seems the rostros are kind of popular. :D Thanks all. 

 

Well, this stuff is getting a bit tougher and leaner, but at least two bits to add, both sticky impressions. Another rare Echinolichas sp. pygidium, and A beat up Acanthopyge contusa hypostome.
