Welcome to the forum.  The first 2 pictures are too blurry for me to see.  The remaining photos appear to be the cephalon  (head) of the trilobite Eldredgeops rana.  Nice find.

I agree with peat burns with trilo cephalon. Nice find.

Yes, that's a bit better.  Those bits could be a lot of things (brachiopod bits, trilobite bits, etc.).  Unfortunately, I can't discern enough detail to be sure.  That's one I'd want to see under the dissecting scope or hand lens before venturing a guess.:)

Peat Burns is correct here.

Hi there!

 

Do those conical-shaped fragments have segmentation present?  Could they perhaps be Tentaculites sp. or something along that line?  I just wanted to chime in because I visited Hungry Hollow (mid-Devonian) here in Ontario over the weekend, and I found a partial cephalon of an Eldredgeops rana as well as many  Tentaculites sp.  What is the age of the rocks, by the way?
