My current collection presented as best as I can. It never occurred to me to ask about the species name etc. Could anyone here assist me with identifying these specimens?003.thumb.jpg.d7bc637b06d361ed7da86acd5873996b.jpg

Looks like Dactylioceras sp.  to me. Perhaps some of our UK collectors can drill this down to a species if you could provide some location information on where these were found.

Of course sorry, Whitby/North Yorkshire coast area.

I would wager either D. commune or D. athleticum, where the latter has more ribbing on the outer whorls than the former.

Nice collection of dacs! A common ammonite find from the whitby coast but they're certainly lovely ammonites.
