This weekend Natalie found an intriguing fossil: a Hypoturrillites whit an epibiont on the shell. I've rarely seen this kind of association and it makes me wonder if the epibiont was already on the shell when the ammonite was alive or dit it grow on it after it fell on the sea floor. If anyone has papers on the subject it would be greatly apriciated ( @doushantuo maybe? )
