Black fossil with orthoconic nautiloid from Etobicoke Creek?

Recommended Posts

HI all!

 

I was just casually perusing my fossils, and I noticed that there are some black fragments on a rock that contains an orthoconic nautiloid that I found at Etobicoke Creek here in Mississauga, Ontario (Georgian Bay Formation, Upper Ordovician).  Are these black fragments fossil-related, or are they something else?  Please see pictures below:

Thanks for your input!

Brachiopod bits, at a guess.

It looks like a conglomerate of a bunch of stuff in it. Cool orthocone.

My first thought is trilobite bits.
