Help with some micro-gastropods from the Middle Jurassic of the UK


Recommended Posts


Hey all!


Today I bring you some teeny tiny gastropods!

All Inferior Oolite Group, Cotswolds UK. Every formation. There are a few different species that I have described here:


Species A: "helter-skelter". A very very loose spiral, resembling a helter skelter...



Species B: very neat loose spiraled.



Species C: very tight spiral, very common



Species D: fascinatingly bumpy textured spiral. Reminds me of a wallpaper!



Measurements in cm.

If anyone else comes across the same fossils (hey from the future!), I've been looking for ages for a paper on Oolite fossils.


Hopefully now we'll up the visibility of this information?


Here's the most related paper that I could find (same age):
