Unsure - Ordovician, lower Bobcaygeon, north of Manitoulin


Recommended Posts

Not positive about this one. Found today north of Manitoulin, low to middle Bobcaygeon Fm. Despite very common ostracods, this is not a conspicuous cluster of them, methinks. Echinoderm? About 6 cm top to bottom.

Does it compare well with the tubercles on this specimen of Bufoceraurus?

That was my thought, but I didn’t want to let wishful thinking get the better of me. :P I think you have it!

Will do! 
Still have a few more days to collect to keep my prep tools busy. :D 
This one will be an easy abrasion since it is likely just a fragment.

Yup. Same as where we found the Bufo frag last year. Place hasn’t changed at all. Did find a possible complete, but small, Ceraurus there. Not much else. Doing spot 2 all day tomorrow.

 

We did go to K’s. Canoed, swam, drank, had a good dinner. We came up through the 400/69, staying halfway from Sudbury. Ferry on Saturday afternoon.

Update on the fragment after a preliminary pass.
