  1. Hi guys I decided to rescue and acquire a new unlabelled specimen. It appears to be a rugose solitary coral that can possibly come from the Devonian of south western Ontario. Can anyone give me any leads on the species level??

    As promised here is another of the specimens that I prepared that will be included in the new "Dawn of Life" gallery at the ROM. Not sure it belongs in the Preparation topic as I only have the single picture. Moderator feel free to move. Those that know me realize that I hate taking pictures. There are occasions when you get to work on a specimen that you absolutely do not want to return at the end of preparation. That was certainly the case with this one. Of all the specimens I have ever prepared for someone else, this plate is probably the one that I most wanted to keep for my o
  3. Today Deb and I made the two hour drive up to just outside the town of Formosa, Ontario, to have a look at the Formosa reef limestone, which is part of the Amherstburg Formation. This road cut is the type locality for this material, and it was humbling to be at the exact same location that researchers of yesteryear such as Ludvigsen and Fagerstrom derived their material that formed the basis of their published work on it. Here are some shots of the road cut. Hardly does it justice. This represents a single, massive biohermal knoll. I've wanted to visit this site for a while now, h
  4. Hi guys so today I came across a new shop that popped up in downtown Hamilton, Ontario. Anyway long story short I bought what appears to be Silurian coral fossil that originated somewhere on the Niagara Escarpment in Ontario or the State of New York. This fossil came from a peculiar museum that liquidated its collections in Niagara of Ontario and closed but the fossil didnt come with a label. Can anyone help me pin down what it is? I have never encountered a fossil like this on the Niagara Escarpment of Hamilton, Ontario. Also this was being sold along with o
  5. Finally I can share an incredible piece with you all!!!!!!!! I have been very fortunate to be able to do invertebrate fossil preparation for The Royal Ontario Museum (The ROM). I have recently been given permission to share pictures of some of the work that I have done for them. Thank you Dr. J.B. Caron. In the coming weeks I will share some pictures of other pieces I did for them. In total I prepared about 12 pieces for them out of their collection and I donated 7 pieces for the new gallery. In case you are not already aware they will be opening a major new fossil gall
  6. Well, since moving to Ottawa, I haven't had the chance to go out fossil hunting. There wasn't a whole lot of info on the web about the geology here. So my wife and I decided to buckle up and find a spot ourselves (without any hammers or chisels). We tend to be very lucky people, but I was surprised by the THOUSANDS of trilobites we came across in a matter of 20 minutes. We were on the shoreline of the Ottawa river, we found a certain type of shale that was just crawling with them. If any lucky soul goes to the spot where we left all the remnants of our hunt, they will sure be having a good day
  7. A year ago I was able to hook up with my field comrade for some time in the Lagerstatte of the Silurian Eramosa in Ontario (northern section). This was a place where land and sea scorpions were found by the ROM. We did not find any. We obtained permission to enter quarries on account of connections and complying by safety rules. They do not let casual collectors in, so it was on account of those connections that we gained access. These quarries specialize in flagstone. Much of it is blank. Our focus was on the rubbly upper portion of the Silurian. As stated, fossils are ver

  9. So I was at Arkona with my family recently, and at the flooded pit my mom found this piece It's about an inch long It's the hole(?) that I'm confused about. The only thing I can think of is some type of coral, but I really have no idea.
  10. My daughter found this rock at Kew Beach in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She thought her dad knew everything but he can't help with this! She is very excited to know what she found and Google has made us more uncertain rather than certain. We're hoping the community here can tell us what she found or at least point us in the right direction. Thanks, Steve & Big Bunny

    Toronto (Upper Ordovician) Fossil ID

    Hey everyone! I found my first fossil last weekend in a creek near the Don River in midtown Toronto. From my knowledge reading through this forum, it seems to be packed with crinoid stem fossils. I’d really appreciate a confirmation, to learn more about the age of the fossil and maybe even the species.

    Freshwater Fossil

    Found this fossil loose on a limestone shoreline on St. Joseph Island located at the north end of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada. I am a civil engineer and have some experience with rocks but I’m fairly new to fossils. Any help identifying would be great!
  13. I have been collecting fossils for many years, but this fossil is without a doubt the strangest and most mysterious of the fossils I’ve ever found- I would really appreciate your help in helping solve this mystery of what it is and how old it is! It was found on the rocky shores of Lake Huron in Southampton, Ontario. I initially was interested in it because it looked like a boot and I thought it was a native carving, but realized it must be a fossil of something I’ve never seen before. It’s very interesting to me because it almost seems to be coiled like a spine of an animal, but could also be

    Found Fossil? at Lake Huron

    Good Morning, I am hoping someone could maybe give me a little information on what I may have found. This was found on the shores of Lake Huron in Ontario. I found it as I was walking along the shores. It looks to be a fish head or an eel head maybe. There is a whole in top, and around the neck looks to be roughly cut or torn and a lighter grey material inside what appears to be the head cavity. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Chad Schofield
  15. Synonym: Pleurocystites robustus Billings, 1854. Alternative spelling: Pleurocystis. Taxonomy from fossilworks.org. Diagnosis (Sprinkle et al., 1985): “Theca rounded-triangular, nearly symmetrical; 3 rhombs elliptical, dichopores occupying less than 40% of sutures; periproct occupying 70% of lower side, about 680-700 periproctals, no rectal lobe, anal pyramid away from margin; ornament composed of medium growth lines and few ridges radiating to the plate sides and corners; brachioles having large groove extending up aboral side, cover plates fairly large; proximal stem slowly ta
  16. This was an oddity in my Dundee Formation material (Mid-Devonian) I decided to bring home out of curiousity. The material itself mostly contains white silicified fossils in sandy/packstone pulses with some grey crystalline chert horizons. The colouration of this piece, and its general shape, gave me pause as it seemed a bit out of place. Initially I thought, "possibly a fish bit?" (stout spinal process)? but the internal structure didn't strike me as likely. The specimen measures about 7 cm long. My second thought was possible plant material, but I am rubbish on plant identification in the Dev
  17. So I started fossil hunting and collecting recently. I dont have much knowledge on fossil identification and am not even sure if some of the "fossils" I've found are even fossils and not just cool looking rocks. Was just hoping people more knowledgeable on the subject could share what they think are fossils and if they know what types they are.

    Hello looking to identify thi8s coral found in Ottawa, Ontario
  19. Lise found the first blastoid of the year at Arkona, during last weeks spectacular warm spell. She also found the first Petoskey stone, though there was very little of Lake Huron’s shoreline free of snow and ice. I, however, found a stromatoporoid. An interesting piece, from a chunk of armour stone, quarried from somewhere or other. A spectacular ice nugget was also found.

    A Ridiculous Find

    A friend of mine last weekend was digging near an old creek bed on his farm property in Southern Ontario and came across a "Weird rock" as he described to me that I should check out, when I got to his house and he presented the approx. 10lbs "weird rock" my jaw hit the floor, this weird rock was 100% a tooth from something that lived a looong time ago. It was the coolest thing I'd ever seen before, so after an hour of googling we realized by the cusped shapes on the tooth this was a mastodon tooth....in his back yard practically. We are planning on going back to dig this weekend, so my questio
  22. I was able to get out three times to three different local spots. Fairly underwhelming results, but it was nice to get back out in the field now that the snows have melted. The first two spots I had effectively tapped out last year, but it always pays to check in. The third one, featured here, was a new prospect. I had made a cursory visit last autumn, and then tried to jump the gun by going here at the end of February but the snows were still too deep. Exploring the Dundee Formation is admittedly a pretty niche focus. There is probably a good reason why it isn't the top destinati

    A few Fossils from recently

    Hello everyone, thanks for letting me join the site! I'm an amateur fossil hunter from Toronto who has made a few expeditions in the past months. I've found a few fossils of interest that I'd like some help identifying. Below are links to photos of the fossils in question on my iNaturalist page, along with some additional details. Thanks all in advance! The following were all found along the Don River in Toronto. 1. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/68570190 2. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/68573964 3. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/685701
  24. This is a work in progress, a kind of "master list" of trilobite species found in Ontario according to the available literature. In some cases, stratigraphy and taxonomic names have been modernized. Correlations are added where it is expected that species found in equivalent strata could be found in Ontario rocks. I have not included trilobites from the Hudson/James Bay area as there are a number of species there that still are in need of formal description. There are also a number of uncertainties that require more literature support before they are included here. I'll update this as more res
