    Hi- Can anyone help me to ID the exact species of this Ceratites ammonite? (it's roughly 5" in diameter, and I've no info about its provenance- probably German Muschelkalk ). Many thanks in advance, Fabio

  18. Triassic Siberian Ceratite

    Dear members of The Fossil Forum, I am busy on the identification of all the fossils in my collection, but some fossils are causing trouble, one of which I will show here. It is 23mm. The name tag says it is an Arctohungarites sp. but in my opinion the umbilicus is too big for Arctohungarites. It looks more like Nordophiceras but I do not know if the fastigate venter is common for that genus. It might very well be neither of these genuses, my knowledge on Siberian ceratites is very limited. The findspot is Northern Siberia, but where exactly is not stated. I know of two sites, Cape Tsvetsov and the Olenek river, does the preservation of this ammonite point at one of these two? The age of the ceratite is said to be Middle Triassic, which means Anisian-Ladinian, although most of the siberian triassic ammonites are Olenekian in age. Apparently Arctohungarites is an Anisian genus, but I am not sure that this ammonite is an Arctohungarites. So my questions are: What Genus and species is this ceratite? Where does it come from? What age is it? Is there anyone who can shed light onto this ceratite and help me? Thanks in advance, Sander
