Body segment?

Recommended Posts

TRM

Found at Hungry Hollow in Devonian-era clay.  Seems iron-rich, so it is possibly man-made.  Is it a segmented body part? Both sides depicted, with end viewsimage.thumb.jpg.7b588c7083da8170e4501a3c2520fd73.jpgimage.thumb.jpg.7b588c7083da8170e4501a3c2520fd73.jpg

Seems to be an orthoconic nautiloid.

Yup. Crushed orthocone cephalopod.

I agree, it's a crushed pyritized orthocone.

Hi John et al.!

 

I do indeed like to hunt there, although I've only been to Hungry Hollow twice so far - hopefully I'll be able to visit more often in 2018...

 

I agree that what was found looks like an orthoconic nautiloid - I've not yet found one at HH, but I've found quite a few in Etobicoke Creek.  I've circled in red what appears to be the siphuncle (I love it when the siphuncle is visible!!!):

Happy hunting everyone!
