An Ammonite with attachments.


Ludwigia

Recommended Posts

I think I probably mentioned previously that I sometimes do some commission work for someone in England who gives me raw material, mostly from Dorset, in exchange for the work. I just finished prepping this beauty and thought I'd show it off here :) Fissilobiceras fissilobatum (15cm. in diameter) from the laeviuscula zone, early Bajocian with a few appendages: At the mouth aperture, the inside view of the shell of a small ammonite, and on the right at the top, a small ammo which I've yet to identify, below it what appears to be a bit of the mouth aperture of another ammonite and below that again, a Chlamys sp. bivalve. On the back is also the inside of part of the shell of yet another ammonite.

The small ammonite is a Sonninia, in all likelihood, S.propinquans.
