  1. Ludwigia

    Staufenia staufensis (Oppel,1858)

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    9cm. This species gives its name to the Staufensis Bank, which appears in certain sections of the Bradfordensis Subzone of the Murchisonae Zone, Upper Aalenian, Middle Jurassic. It is quite common to find them in the Wutach area, but the stone is so hard and the discus-shaped ammonites so fragile, that it's difficult to extricate a well-preserved specimen without damageing it in some way. This one lost much of its shell, exposing the impressions of the sutures on the calcite core and also giving a view into the crystallized chambers of the phragmocon.
  2. Ludwigia

    Staufenia sehndensis (Hoffmann1913)

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    12cm. in circumference. Another one from the Wutach. Upper Aalenian. I found this one a long time ago before I knew any better and unfortunately almost destroyed the living chamber before I realized what I was doing. Haven't found any more of this species since then though, so it's still in the collection. PS in Dec.2012. I've just changed the ID from S.discoidea to S.sehndensis. We've just discovered that this is only the second of its kind identified in the Wutach area.
  3. Ludwigia

    Staufenia sehndensis (HOFFMANN 1913)

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    14cm. in circumference. Another one from Wutach. Upper Aalenian.
  4. Ludwigia

    Staufenia staufensis Twins

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    Not quite identical twins measuring 16 & 18cm. bradfordensis zone, staufensis bank Late Aalenian From the Wutach Valley
  5. Ludwigia

    Staufenia sehndensis (HOFFMANN 1913)

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    9,5cm. Wutach Valley find. Upper Aalenian.
  6. Ludwigia

    Multiblock 12

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    19x11x4cm. Left: Staufenia sehndensis. Middle: Ancolioceras opalinoides. Right: Ludwigia haugi. From the murchisonae Zone, upper Aalenian, middle Jurassic in the Wutach Valley.
  7. I mentioned in another post a few days ago that I had discovered a site in the Middle Jurassic Aalenian which I hadn't visited previously. I found it rather unexpectedly while in search of the humphriesi oolite formation. It was obvious that other collectors had worked here in the past, but the rock had also been weathering away for a few years since the last ones were here, so I figured it would be worth spending the good part of a day inspecting it. I set off to this avail this very morning. It's a bit of a way up to get there, but not too strenuous if you take your time. By the way, I remem
  8. I decided to try my luck again at one of my old Aalenian spots in the Wutach valley last week and it panned out this time. I'd been there a couple of weeks ago without much success, so I decided to try to follow the horizon this time in the hopes of finding a pristine exposure. This necessitated a lot of digging and delving, and was a bit of a challenge for my sense of orientation, but I finally was able to localize two exposures which look like they could be producing some interesting finds for some time to come. I've been busy the last few days doing some commission work, but I finished
  9. Ludwigia

    Multiblock 10

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    Staufenia sehndensis (10cm.) with Ludwigia haugi (5cm.) from the late Aalenian murchisonae zone in the Wutach Valley.
  10. A complete specimen with the shell preserved on one side. The transition from phragmocone to body chamber can be seen on the mold on the reverse side where the shell no longer exists.
  11. Almost complete with the shell partially preserved. Old German Chronostraigraphy: Dogger (Braunjura) beta 1
  12. The samples of this species at this site are practically impossible to extract in one piece due to the large size and the discus-like shape of the fossil and also to the hardness and cleavage of the matrix. Therefore this one was extracted in several pieces which were then glued back together. All remaining cracks and crevices were then filled in with stonemeal. What we see here is just a complete phragmocone, which is apparent through the suture lines visible on the calcite mold seen in the second photo, where the shell broke off during extraction. The complete creature with body chamber prob
