Can't help with the Miocene piece, but the ammonites are lovely as always. :)

Thanks Adam. Your presence has just reminded me that there's a terebratulid brachiopod on the back of the limestone block with the Trimarginites. Here you go.

funnily enough, although this was not mentioned in the description, [I found] an ammonite on a late Jurassic limestone block.

Of course you did!

Thanks everyone. I must admit, I like that Garantiana best as well, although the Trimarginites was a nice surprise.

Your ammonite finds never cease to impress, especially the Prorsiphinctes. For you they turn up in all of the best and most unlikely places. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.

Thanks Jeff. It was a bit of a struggle to coax that Prorsisphinctes out of a very hard block, and the Garantiana as well for that matter, but it was worth it. The latter was from a block only one horizon below the former, but it's remarkable what a difference in coloration there is.
