Congratulations to all. Cool pics of beautyful ammonoids. I missed this thread.

 

I do have this book too. Got it as a gift from a good friend. It is well written and beautyful photographed.

When I first read it I got a smile at page 53. The on this page pictured Triassic Heteromorph ammonoid Cochloceras sp. once was in my hands. I guess it found its way via Spain and London into the book.

It comes from the same location like those on the added pics.Cochloceras sp. Triassic/Rhaetian 1

Yes I found it by myself. I knew several small locations where you can find Cochloceras. But mostly not as plentyful and colourful like the above shown. 

Max. size of that gastropod like ammonoids is about4-5cm. I mainly collect Triassic ammonoids. Another end Triassic heteromorph ammonoid is Rhabdoceras(the longish thing) shown on the added pic.

kind regards

Andreas
