  1. Lithacosphinctes evolutus (Quenstedt 1888)

    From the album Late Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    35cm. Early Kimmeridgian From the upper Danube valley.
  2. From the album Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    12cm. Phragmocone. Geisingen Oolite Formation concavum zone Late Aalenian Found at the clay pit in Geisingen.
  3. Finally got out again!

    The weather suddenly warmed up for a few days and started melting the snow, so I figured I'd grab the opportunity yesterday and check out the Geisingen area as long as the weather held. It's supposed to get colder again next week, so I thought I'd try to take advantage before more snow gets dumped on us. This was my first sojourn in over a month, so I was just glad to get out into the field, even if it didn't pan out much. I'd heard that a group had been digging with some success at the clay pit, so I thought I'd have a look-see to at least assess the situation there. It turned out that the spot where they had dug was pretty obvious, but the clay from above had slid down and buried it, which would make for a days work for a group of 4. I then decided to explore the old north end of the pit in the hopes that slips had perhaps created some new exposures, didn't find any though, so I doubled back down the east edge to a spot where I'd found some loose blocks in the distant past and started scratching around a bit. Luck was with me this time in the form of a nicely weathered block which gave up 3 well-preserved ammos and a few bivalves. I was needless to say already more than satisfied with these results, but since it was still early in the afternoon, I decided to check out a field nearby which had been productive in the past. I had noticed while driving past it on the way to the pit that it had been freshly plowed. This also turned out to be a good decision. I ended up after a couple of hours with a mini sack full of ammos in varying conditions of preservation, some in matrix, some free. All in all, it was a good day, so my itch has been stilled for another month or so, I would say. I didn't think to take my camera along again , so there are no in situ pictures, but I can at least provide you with a photo of the finds and I promise to post some of them once they're prepped.
  4. Colosia zietini (Loriol 1878)

    From the album Brachiopoda

    6cm. long. With small Beekite rings. Early Kimmeridgian Late Jurassic Found at Geisingen quarry in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany
  5. Strigoceras bessinum (Brasil 1895)

    From the album Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    7cm. Not your everyday find. Found on a plowed field in the area around Geisingen. Presumably from the romani subzone of the humphriesianum zone, Bajocian.
  6. From the album German Gastropods and Bivalves

    8cm. long. Missing a bit of shell at the end. Found on a plowed field near Geisingen. Presumably Bajocian humphresianum zone.
  7. Cucullea (Idonearca) sp. (Lamarck 1801)

    From the album German Gastropods and Bivalves

    6.5cm. long. Found on a plowed field near Geisingen. With tube worm epizoa. Presumably Bajocian humphresianum zone.
  8. Eopecten velatus (Goldfuss 1833)

    Shell preservation.
  9. Parkinsonia parkinsoni (Sowerby 1821)

    From the album Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    6.5cm. Found on a field in the viscinity of Geisingen. Parkinsoni zone, late Bajocian. I believe that the tube worms belong to the species Mucroserpula sp.
  10. Pleurotomaria rotundata

    Calcite steinkern.
  11. Bathrotomaria Amyntas

    This is a cast of the original which was donated to the Natural History Museum in Stuttgart.
  12. Cenoceras intermedium (Sowerby 1816)

    This is part of the phragmocone in steinkern preservation. The siphuncle can be seen in the second to last photo. The last photo shows a large specimen with body chamber (22cm.) and a smaller one, which is just the inner portion of the phragmocone (4cm.). Both are from the same site and zone as the first one.
  13. Just about complete with most of the shell intact. This is the microconch to Prorsisphinctes.
  14. Strenoceras sp. (Hyatt 1900)

    Phragmocone with shell preserved.
  15. Dorsetensia pinguis (Roemer 1836)

    Phragmocone with preseved shell.
  16. This specimen with completely preserved shell was found in two pieces of matrix on a field. It was then subsequently prepared out and repaired.
  17. The shell is preserved on this phragmocone.
  18. Brasilia decipiens (Buckman 1881)

    Shell preservation over calcite steinkern. About 3/4 complete.
  19. Crussoliceras atavum (Schneid 1914)

    Limestone mold. This big fellow is practically complete.
  20. Limestone mold. Only the phragmocone.
  21. Brasilia aff. laevigata (Geszy)

    Steinkern of the phragmocone of an otherwise very large ammonite. Synonym: Ludwigia aff. laevigata (Buckman)
  22. Most of the shell on this specimen is intact. Phragmocone.
  23. The subgenus Ludwigella is a collective term for what are believed to be microconches for the genus Graphoceras.
  24. Brasilia decipiformis (Dietze 2014)

    Calcite mold. This extremely variable species was newly erected in 2014 by Dietze etal. Literature: V.Dietze etal, Aalenian (Middle Jurassic) ammonites and stratigraphy of the Geisingen clay pit (SW Germany), Palaeodiversity 7: 61–127; Stuttgart 30 December 2014.
