Does anyone know the genus (species, even?) of this coiled cephalopod found at the famous roadcut in Southern Indiana? We found this last spring.DSC_1427modforum.thumb.JPG.eb30fecbea583f3a845ac64167ecfccc.JPGDSC_1426modforum.thumb.JPG.b1017fb2075dc0ea8b1bfe96ddf28026.JPG

As Foozil noted views from other angles would be helpful.  Is it completely coiled on itself like a modern nautilus shell?  If so it is most likely a Charactoceras.  If it is curved but doesn't wrap around on itself there are a few genera it could belong to, so those other photos would be useful.  Nice find! :wub:

Oh I see what you mean. It is surely not tightly rolled. If the above is not enoughI will grab a couple more tomorrow. Putting kids to bed now. Thanx so far too BTW
