Ladinian Ammonoids

Recommended Posts

andreas

After a longer break, I was able to hunt my favourite strata again. Friend and I did hunt at a Triassic site of Ladinian age. I found a covered ammonoid lense with different good preserved ammonoid species. The first visible ammonoid was a Gymnites sp. post-2660-0-85581600-1443457541_thumb.jpg

Below this ammonoid things get better and better.post-2660-0-01874300-1443457565_thumb.jpg

Hi,

first prep results of the second pic above.post-2660-0-06594300-1453573713_thumb.jpg It is not finished at all. I have to wait for warmer weather to do the finish outside of my lab.

Meanwhile i can work on my current project from the same location.post-2660-0-36639300-1453574313_thumb.jpg The big one is the same species of Ptychites like the one on the first pic. I never thought that they change their shape so much when full grown up.

The Ptychites in the first photo looks great. Is everything in the second photo parts of a puzzle?

That definitely looks like FOTM when you finish prepping it. Congratulations on your work so far and a spectacular find.

Hi Roger!

Yes, all on the second pic is on one slab.post-2660-0-29902700-1453649379_thumb.jpg Please excuse my silence to your first post in September. But I have to kept silence. Now all is exploited. That was a fantastic lense.post-2660-0-03508200-1453649969_thumb.jpg

@amour 25, thanks for your comment

@Tim, It definitly was more than one great trip for me. I never found an untouched fossil accumulation like this one. Mostly big ammonoides were deposited therein probably sorted by deepwater currents.

@Icordova, For me it is a killer piece too :)

@Jeffrey, maybe I post it and thanks for your congrats.

No problem. Now that is really going to be fantastic when you're done with it!
