Recommended Posts

JamieLynn

Howdy!  A few ammonites that are eluding me as to ID. Anyone with more knowledge of them, I would appreciate some confirmation or negation of my attempts! @erose @JohnJ @Uncle Siphuncle

From Waco Pit Del Rio Formation.

Thanks!! 

Possibly Tetragonites brazoensis? Or Adkinsia ?

Second one

Mantelliceras wacoense? Or maybe Paracycloceras?

Not a great pic, but a little bit of a close up on the suture of this one:

I don't have my ammonite books in front of me but I can send you a paper by Mancini, 1977 and a faunal list I transcribed from it.  It is a list of known species from the formation.  Still a lot of species to choose from but helpful none the less.

 

And those are nice specimens. Did you take these pics with the new camera scope?

@erose Thanks, I'll look over those. And yeah, with my new micro camera. 

So Waco PIt is Grayson? I thought it was Del Rio.
