As always for Yorkshire Lias ammonites, try Andy's blog for more excellent information and to track down species.

Catacoeloceras I think, nice spines! The pyrite may well be linked to decay of the ammonite tissue, though there's a lot around anyway probably down to more generalised decay of organic matter.


Thank you yet again @TqB, I daren’t attempt any prep on the inner whorls until I get a fresh point for my air pen so it’ll sit in the collection like that for a while

Sounds like it's time to invest in an abrader :) Very nice Cata which deserves tender loving care.

Yes I fear it might be. Though I might find someone more capable than myself to finish the prep on this one.

 

Thanks @Top Trilo & @Tidgy's Dad :)
