    Adam's Ordovician.

    A nice Dictyonema flabelliforme dendroid graptolite from Oslo Fields in Norway. It's Tremadoc, Lower Ordovician in age and is thus maybe around 480 mya. Another angle :
  2. I was given permission to post the remaining collection of my friend, a fellow collector who lives in my city. This is a guy who had the sensational privilege of collecting the Burgess shales for 10 years, eventually in a capacity to earn his MSc in Earth Sciences. He and I collect on the odd Sunday when he can get through his honey-do list, but he works as a property appraiser now. He also collected extensively throughout Ontario, and even picked up old bottles around Toronto. Lots of interesting highlights here, including an autographed Stephen Jay Gould book, a Walcott specimen card, and pl
  3. Returned last evening from a road trip up in the near north. We covered about 1,750 km of road, and although the finds were not plentiful, good times were still had. The missus had some holiday time to spare, so we headed off for adventure. Our main goal was to visit the islands north of Manitoulin, but we had to take the long way around as the ferry was booked solid, and any nearby accommodations were booked many months in advance. So we decided to pay a visit to a fossil friend who is situated in a nice part of the province. Day 1 was taken up driving for most of it, so a 4 hour
  4. I found this fossil in the Georgian bay formation in the GTA in southern Ontario. I have no idea what the area highlighted in blue is (first picture). It looks like a slug or some type of annelid. My only guess is some type of Machaeridian, but I doubt it's that as well. Any ideas? It measures around 9 cm tip to tip, Thanks

    Ordovician Maclurites?

    Hi all, I'm on vacation about 8 miles east of Galena Illinois. I was going to wait until I got home to post a travel piece. I'm too excited to wait, though. I had reached out to a few rock/fossil clubs asking whether there are any known collecting sites around here, and nobody knew of any. There's a road-cut near where I'm staying, and I found what I think is a maclurites fossil! It's not in the best condition, but not bad for about 450-million years old! From what I can tell, the exposed rock around here is in the Galena Group (Trenton Limestone). One app says the stratigraphic unit is the Mi
  6. Not positive about this one. Found today north of Manitoulin, low to middle Bobcaygeon Fm. Despite very common ostracods, this is not a conspicuous cluster of them, methinks. Echinoderm? About 6 cm top to bottom.
  7. From the album: Echinoderm Collection

    Pleurocystites squamosus (Parseley, 1982 (?)) with partial Isorophusella incondita (Raymond, 1915 ) attached to the cystoid. Upper Bobcaygeon Formation, Middle Ordovician. Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada. Plate is 11cm long.

    St. Leon Brachiopod

    I recently required this lovely little brachiopod from the kindly @connorp It was found in the 'Butter Shale" layer of the Liberty Formation at the Southgate Hill road cut, St. Leon, Dearborn County, Indiana. This is the layer that is famous for the multitude of tiny, usually enrolled, Flexicalymene retrorsa minuens trilobites. But it doesn't contain many brachiopods apart from the occasional lingulid as far as I can ascertain . So this specimen has likely come from a higher level of the Liberty, or possibly from the Lower Whitewater overlying that. Or, conceivably, it comes from th
  9. While heading to visit family in southern Indiana, I decided to leave a day early to do a bit of collecting in the Cincinnatian. The first stop was, as usual, St. Leon, to look for the famous Flexicalymene rollers. In the past, I've usually found 2-4 per visit, but was quite lucky this time, walking away with 10 rollers and my first prone. Here are a couple in situ shots. After a couple hours at St. Leon, I headed towards my hotel. As it turned out, it was just down the road from Trammel Fossil Park. I had not been here before. It ex

    Ordovician Unknown - Echinoderm?

    This specimen was found in the Maquoketa Formation (Upper Ordovician) of Minnesota. My best guess is part of an echinoderm (crinoid or cystoid calyx?) but I'm not sure, I've never found anything similar. Any thoughts?

    Coral Id please

    Collected from near Sharonville, Ohio...I think Devonian... by a friend...is this a Cystiphylloides americanum? Approx. 1 3/4" x 1 1/2". The reason I ask...is I only have books from Devonian of NYS. This is the first fossil shaped like a horn coral with this outside pattern that I've seen. The one horn coral in my book that has this patterning is long and slender...while this is short and fat. Greg

    Fossil on Barrassy beach

    I found this fossil on Barrassy beach in Ayrshire Scotland. It looks like a shell on the outside with a mesh of white and grey rock inside. I haven't seen any other shell fossils that look like this though. It's partially burnt on the top, I found it next to a fire pit so it has probably been scorched recently. What do you think this is and how old do you think it is?

    Australia's Largest Trilobite

    Thought I'd post this interesting new paper which describes Australia's largest species of trilobite so far documented. Described are 16 species of trilobite, including two new genera and five new species, all from the Amadeus Basin in the Northern Territory. One is even named in honour of my father and I, Iridis schoonorum LINK
  15. This weekend I had the opportunity to spend a couple hours hunting in the Galena Group (Upper Ordovician) in northern Illinois. The Galena around here is mostly massive dolomite, so most fossils are preserved as molds. Mollusks dominate the fauna, especially gastropods, although other interesting specimens crop up from time to time. Burrows A large orthoconic nautiloid Fisherites are fairly common in some beds, although extracting complete specimens is challenging. Thaleops sp. Some better gastropod examples
  16. Hello TFF friends, I recently recieved some Ordovician Brachiopods from Ohio and would love some help with getting IDs for them, First up are two Lingulid Brachiopods from the Waynesville Formation: I have not been able to find much on the brachiopods from this formation, the brachiopods also look slightly different so I am not sure if that indicates some kind of different species or these are just differences between individuals. Both are about 1.5 cm in length Next up are two rhynchonellids, these two are preserved together and are about 2 cm in width, perhaps Lep
  17. Recently returned from a near week-long dig with a field comrade in the Quebec City area, visiting many sites, dealing with torrential downpours, sleeping rough, and covering roughly 2,000km of road. It was a fantastic time with a good friend and quite productive. I came back with about six flats of fossils. I'll show a few of them. None of them are prepared yet, and I have a lot of work to do! I'll show them in their raw field state for now. The Neuville Formation is upper Ordovician, comparable to the Cobourg/Lindsay Fm in Ontario. The faunal composition is different, though. T
  18. I purchased a couple of buckets of fossil/rocks from a friend who found them in the Ohio/Indiana area...which he told me was Ordovician and Silurian. Unfortunatly I've lost the paper that described where this section of fossil/rock came from. At first I thought it was a Crinoid...upon further inspection I noticed that there were patterns along with the ridges. So, I scribed it out of the rock. I noticed that one end was slightly larger than the other and that it was on the "Oval" side. There is a bit of pyritisation...especially inside the small end. So, I'm not really sure ...but I

    Ordovician fossil ID

    Good day Can you help with the ID of this fossil from the Ordovician of Fezouata formation, Morocco. Cheers Malek
  20. Last weekend, I decided to venture out to my favorite site to find trilobites. It is a site better visited during dry weather, but I couldn't wait! I do not know which was muddier, the truck or me when I packed it up. Here is the location without the mud visable. This material is best approached by splitting larger slabs of matrix. The result is always a bunch of trilo-bits. This is a nicer hash plate found that day

    Please help ID this fossil

    I found this strange stone in Hadeland in Norway. On it I found patterns of 2 nautiloids and some STRANGE structures. Could it be a sponge? The age is middle Katian, Upper Ordovician. Enlarged nautiloid part, not an ortoconic? The "arm"-structures are on all sides of the stones. Finally, the last side with a rather unusual form of a nautiloid, not so well preserved. Can it be called orthoconic when it expands its diameter so rapidly?

    Coral/Sponge?

    I was cleaning up my "fossil prep room" and found this specimen I meant to ask about months ago. It was found at the base of a Kentucky road cut that had Kope Formation. It is paper thin and actually popped off of the matrix. I then glued it back on. It seemed to look better associated with the trilobit. I am hoping to ID this as specific as possible since it is quite different from what I have found before. THANKS!!!! Mike

    Wasting Some Time

    I have been good friends with a gentleman from Kansas for many years now and have seen him go through three kidney transplants at Mayo Clinic. He is here for another surgical procedure and is staying with my family. I took him over for a post surgical check up and had a few hours to waste. So off to look at a few rocks south of Rochester, Mn. until Ed was finished. A maclurite was soon spied weathered in a slab of rock. When a fossil hunter sees this, take the time to split that rock. So I did and these Maclurites were exposed. A short trip, but fun nonetheless. Mike
