    You are very welcome Jen

    I’m a little rusty on the material from Strasburg. I tend to collect there in the Fall and work on it during the winter, it carries me through most of the bad weather days in the Winter.

    Most days, in all seasons I collect eurypterids and related material at Ridgemount Quarries in Fort Erie Ontario. They allow me unlimited access. In return we use specimens in their Primary and Secondary school educational programs with exceptional specimens offered gratis to the ROM.

    2 unnamed species of worm, a phyllocarid, and possible pterobranch have turned up in the last year or so.

    Hi Jen

    Yes it is a silicified trilobite, and enrolled, again microscopic and also from Locality 2, Strasburg Va. I have yet to determine the species, it could be a Tretaspis. That’s only a guess. Immature specimens are hard to tell.

    Wayne

    The specimen is a juvenile, likely Merapsid

    • Wow! Thank you for sharing! I’ll have to get some of my arthropod friends to join myFOSSIL so they can help us narrow down these IDs. I know Rob Swisher was working on ontogenetic variation in trilobites not long ago but he has moved on to echinoids last I heard. I’ll try to touch base with him when I see him in Arizona next month.

    Hi Jen

    Glad you like them. These ostracods are all about 1mm wide. The species is not found in GSA Memoir 86

    I have a low power microscope with a 10 megapixel camera, both from Amscope. I believe I used 40x. I also use Zerene stacking software to get the entire specimen in focus.

    The specimens were placed on a very clean sheet of glass elevated from the base, I directed the LED lights at the specimens and allowed the background to remain dark.

    The specimens are from Locality 2 Strasburg Va, Edinburg Fomation (Ordovician) and etched from the rock with dilute hydrochloric acid.

    • That’s excellent! Ostracods, in my experience, can be very difficult to identify and there are not many Paleozoic ostracod workers – I can only think of Larry Knox off the top of my head.

    An unknown ostracod from Locality 2 Strasburg Va. Any thoughts on identification would be appreciated.

    Thank you Jeff
    I will keep searching references, sooner or later I’ll figure it out.

    An unknown silicified ostracod found near Locality 2 Strasburg Va. This specimen is not illustrated in “MORPHOLOGIC AND SYSTEMATIC RELATIONSHIPS OF SOME MIDDLE ORDOVICIAN OSTRACODA – Kraft” nor can I find anything similar in “Treatise on INVERTEBRATE PALEONTOLOGY Part Q”
