The biggest heart breaker of the day, especially for me, was this partial Isoteles, pygidium and partial thorax that measured over five inches long. Complete it would have been over 10 inches. Wow! maybe next time. Always a reason to go back. 

 

 

Heart breaker? That would have made my day, my week, my month!  You sure are greedy, Jeff. :D

Congratulations on your finds, and thanks for posting them. I'm happy you and Al were able to get out there.

Good outing with a lot of variety, Jeffrey. :dinothumb:

Yes, the Isotelus could be monsters! I have chunks (from Bowmanville) that, complete, would have peaked at 12-14 inches. :default_faint:They are the tanks of the Ordovician. :P

Nice report Jeff! Glad you and Al were able to make it out. Those are nice big chunks of  Isotelus! I’ve only found one decent sized, recognizable piece recently. They are usually just bits and pieces down here.
 

Congrats on the Gosselettia find! It’s a beauty! :wub:

In addition to the above pictured finds from the first site in the Middle Devonian, I found this very tiny Bellerophontoid gastropod, Praematuraptropis ovatus, a new species for my collection. Thanks go to Shamalama Dave for help with the ID.

Glad you could get that ID. Almost looks like an ammonite. Nice gastropod!
