Cladopora sp. Hungry Hollow formation Joseph Koniecki

Submitted on 2007-02-04 by Joseph Koniecki

Location (approximate): Arkona, Lambton, ON

Strat unit: Hungry Hollow formation

Submitter notes: Preparation of this specimen was conducted by carefully removing pieces from the matrix and immediately gluing them back together. Once the entire specimen was removed a map was made of its original orientation. The specimen was then placed in a quaternary ammonium solution for cleaning. The solution caused the glue points to dissolve. Then the clean pieces were assembled using the map. The final orientation represents the specimen as it occurred in the matrix and not necessarily in its living position, which may or may not have been the same. The specimen is about 14 cm across at its widest point

Phacops (Eldredgeops?) iowensis southworthi, Eldredgeops (Phacops) rana rana Hungry Hollow formation Mike Topor

Submitted on 2007-02-18 by Mike Topor

Location (approximate): Arkona, Lambton, ON

Strat unit: Hungry Hollow formation

Submitter notes: Phacops iowensis southworthi eyes always contain 13 dorsoventral files and is only known from the Hungry Hollow member of the Widder formation where it is very rare. (The holotype is only a cephalon) The species of P. iowensis and E. rana co-exist in only a few Hamilton formations. This cephalon of P. iowensis southworthi is preserved a few millimeters atop a nearly complete specimen of E. rana rana. The cephalon measures 35mm wide and 23mm high. The E. Rana rana measures 35mm long

Antholites speciosus Hungry Hollow formation Mike Topor

Submitted on 2007-02-18 by Mike Topor

Location (approximate): Arkona, Lambton, ON

Strat unit: Hungry Hollow formation

Submitter notes: These tabulate corals are commonly attached to crinoid stems which probably enabled them to stay above the sea floor to improve their chances for food. These specimens are approximately 25mm in diameter.

Cladochonus antiquus Hungry Hollow formation Mike Topor

Submitted on 2007-02-18 by Mike Topor

Location (approximate): Arkona, Lambton, ON

Strat unit: Hungry Hollow formation

Submitter notes: These somewhat common corals, like Antholites, are found attached to crinoid stems. Favorite hosts are the crinoids' Dolatocrinus and Megistocrinus. On some specimens, Cladochonus deforms the stem of it's host. It is not known how destructive this may have been, if at all, to the life of the crinoid host. The largest of the three pictured specimens is 30 X 40mm. The smallest colony is 22mm in diameter.

Naticonema lineata Hungry Hollow formation John Topor

Submitted on 2007-03-04 by John Topor

Location (approximate): Arkona, Lambton, ON

Strat unit: Hungry Hollow formation

Submitter notes: This gastropod is common in the Hungry Hollow member. However, it is an exceptionally well preserved specimen. Many are found partially crushed or missing pieces of shell. They can range in size from a few millimeters up to about 35mm in diameter. This gastropod is about 31mm in diameter and 22mm high.

Platyceras conicum Hungry Hollow formation John Topor

Submitted on 2007-03-04 by John Topor

Location (approximate): Arkona, Lambton, ON

Strat unit: Hungry Hollow formation

Submitter notes: Platyceras conicum is uncommon in the Hungry Hollow member. Complete specimens are hard to find as the pointed end is fragile and usually found broken off. This is an average size specimen. See scale in photo for size.

Alveolites goldfussi, Botryllopora socialis Hungry Hollow formation Mike Topor

Submitted on 2007-03-05 by Mike Topor

Location (approximate): Arkona, Lambton, ON

Strat unit: Hungry Hollow formation

Submitter notes: Alveolites is common in the Hungry Hollow member. This distinct colony coral is disc-shaped. This specimen is large for the species. Generally, younger specimens will exhibit a smoother surface. This un-cleaned coral shows patches of shale on its surface. A tiny colony of Botryllopora socialis has made a home on the shale near the center of the colony. You will need to zoom in to see it. The coral measures 135mm x 115mm and is approximately 45mm thick.

Submitted on 2007-03-05 by Mike Topor

Location (approximate): Thedford, Lambton, ON

Strat unit: Hungry Hollow formation

These two specimens are slightly smaller than average, but show the general form well. The diameter of the specimen on the left is 39mm. The length of the coral on the right is 67mm and the width is 42mm.

Submitted on 2007-03-05 by Mike Topor

Location (approximate): Arkona, Lambton, ON

Strat unit: Hungry Hollow formation

Submitter notes: Trilobite fragments in the Hungry Hollow member are common, but complete prone specimens are very rare due to the jumbled density of corals, etc. in the “coral zone”. This trilobite’s pygidium was beginning to tuck under when burial took place. See scale in photo for size.
