    Didymoceras ammonite identification

    Hello, Can someone help me identify these two Didymoceras pieces to the species-level? They are from Montana and both were repaired from a few fragments, though neither is said to be composite. From what I can tell they are in the 10-15cm range in terms of size. 1. This one seems to be part of the inner whorl, and based on how close the coil is I think D. cheyennense might be excluded, which leaves either D. stevensoni or D. nebrascense? Also in the 3rd photo there is a strange mismatch between the fragments...a poor fit or composite perhaps?
  3. Visiting fossil collectors from the Odessa school district found the specimen in the first picture and I was reminded of one I found 7 years earlier at the same site shown in the next images. When they asked for the name I had to admit I didn't know. These came from Moss Creek, a nearby tributary of the North Sulphur River and exposing the same deposits, the Ozan Formation from the Taylor Group of the upper Cretaceous. My example is 65 mm long, with a whorl 30 mm X 15 mm. The fragment has a slightly curved shaft, compressed whorl section with a rib index of 4 per whorl height. It h
  4. Hello, I came across this listing for a Australiceras/Proaustraliceras ammonite from the Cretaceous Volga River of Russia, about 12 inches long. In terms of restoration, it is just said to be "cleaned, prepped and stabilized". To my amateur eye, there are no suspicious spots or abrupt changes in texture that would indicate reconstruction/restoration or compositing, and I think the matrix also looks typical of the region. What do you think? Any tampering going on or is it all-natural? Thanks. EDIT: I actually noticed
  5. Hello, I have another tricky ID request with no provenance, for this section of a heteromorphic ammonite. Technically I did get an ID and provenance from the seller as a Nostoceras malagasyense from Madagascar, but the preservation looks very different (more grey/white than brown). This was a chinese seller on that auction site who had that generic ID for a variety of pieces so I suspect it isn't accurate, and he couldn't provide more info when I asked. In the past I did ask about this specimen on this forum using seller-provided photos; I was told it looks instead like
  6. Hello, I came across this Muramotoceras ezoenze (yezoense?) ammonite from Yubari, Japan, and was wondering if it seems legit and natural without restoration/reconstruction/tampering? The whole piece is about 6cm at its widest. I can't accurately assess the quality of preservation/prep, but to me the appearance seems consistent with other specimens, except that this one seems incompletely prepped. For the same reason I don't think there is going to be much tampering with parts still embedded in rock but I am no expert. The seller isn't completely sure, but thinks there is no tamper
  7. Hello, I wanted to get some opinions on this heteromorphic ammonite. It is said to be a Colchidites breistrofferi (61 mm) from the Uppermost Barremian of Paja Fm. in Santander, Colombia. Seller claims no reconstruction/restoration, but it looks quite rough to me. Does it seem legitimate? Is this typically how rough these are, or is this one just badly preserved/prepped? And does the ammonite look complete including living chamber? Thanks!
  8. Following a refreshing swim at the lake with a few friends over the weekend, I decided to take a spur-of-the-moment stop at a construction site I happened to be driving by. The sun was setting, cooling the area and finally making it hospitable despite the recent heat wave. I was not familiar with the exact geology of where I was, but with only an hour and a half of daylight left I decided to not waste too much time and immediately began scouring the dirt. I quickly noticed that the ground was composed of two distinct formations. The higher layer was a grey limestone while the layer

    Scaphites obliquus

    From the album: Westphalian cretaceous fossils

    unique and lovely are heteromorph ammonites like Scaphites. This small but great one comes from middle cenomanian of southern germany, housed in the collection of a friend of mine

    Scaphites cf. diana

    fine uncoiled Ammonite Aegocrioceras bicarinatum from the tonstein-pit Resse near Hannover. Lower cretaceous, hauterivian. Small ammonit, 5 cm diameter. Phragmocon is pyritized, living chamber partial calcited. Aegocrioceras is a very various ammonit, from tightly curled up to strange and very twisted shapes. I will post some next time

  12. Hello, Does this association of Didymoceras cheyennense and Baculites compressus seem legitimate? Any restoration/reconstruction going on, or composite of multiple individuals, especially on the Didymoceras? Dimensions are 22cm x 14cm x 14cm, and listed as of Lower Cretaceous age and from the Pierre Shale of South Dakota. Also, if you had to pick one heteromorph ammonite specimen, would you personally purchase this for your collection (i.e. is it a good example of Didymoceras cheyennense)? I realize this is just a part of the inner whorls. Complete Didymoceras in gene

    ID Ammonite?

    Hello, Anyone know what species this is (and if it's legit)? The seller simply calls it a heteromorph from Germany, late Cretaceous ~ 60mya and measures about 10.8 cm long.
  14. Hello, I'm considering purchasing between 3 heteromorph ammonites. I wanted to ask if they are authentic, and whether it seems like there is any restoration or carving going on. Also, if there's any one that looks to be in particularly bad condition. Here is #1. Presumably Nostoceras: #2, also Nostoceras, appears upside-down in matrix with turricone still embedded. Perhaps I can prep that myself? And #3, listed as Acrioceras tabarelli:
  15. Hello, new member here. I just purchased this heteromorph ammonite from what's considered a reputable website but I've started to get concerned on the authenticity of this specimen due to the heterogeneous coloration (some places dark, some places light). Is there a chance there's some fake pieces as a composite or perhaps heavy restoration? Also it was listed as eubostrychoceras indopacificum, but it looks different from photos of other such specimens. It seems more like a Nostoceras malagasyense, but perhaps I'm just mistaken?

  17. Some more find from Carniol my attempt at id based on http://le-coin-a-fossiles.fr/Gargasien.html first Baculites sp. some of my favourite finds Is further id possible?
  18. Hi All, Over a year ago I found this in situ NSR - Ozan formation Late Cretaceous; Gulfian Series. It's the only one I've found like this in both size and fossilization. I'm terrible with ammonite identifications and would love to put a name to this little specimen and an opinion on if this might be a heteromorphic ammonite? Might it be a Scaphites sp? Thanks! Suture lines:

    Oxybeloceras sp.

    From the album: C&D Canal Micro Fossils

  20. These heteromorph ammonites were found in the middle East in a senonian outcrop. In a limestone but the fossils are made of flint and removed by acid. the pieces are 3-4 centimetres long and are three different individuals. Can you please help me ID them?
