Help me identify these Fossils

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am new here and have never really used a forum before- honestly. But I would love it if someone could help me identify these fossils! I should also add, I found these in Ontario in Canada! Thanks!

Welcome to the Forum. :)

Where were these found? (I'm guessing somewhere near the Great Lakes?)

 

These seem to be water-worn fossil coral. I see some rugose corals and a colonial/tabulate coral in the mix (second from the top).

I found these in Ontario Canada! If you need the specific place I don’t mind sharing either!

Nearby town would probably be good enough for me to give you a ballpark age on these. :)

I think, from top to bottom : 

Producted brachiopod.

Favositid coral. 

Another tabulate coral.

Solitary rugose 'horn' coral. 

Probably Devonian age. 

 

Thank you!

Grand Bend likely puts them in the Dundee Formation, Mid-Devonian. That part of the world was about 20 degrees south of the equator back then. :dinothumb: A warm thought as we look out on snow now. :D Next to Wasaga, the Pinery is the best beach in the province.

You should check regulations regarding collecting fossils in provincial parks. I'm not sure if it is allowed or not, but we don't want you to get into trouble.

Probably a good idea! I’ll do that right now :)
