  1. From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    9cm. From the lower koenigi zone, lower Callovian in the Wutach Valley.
  2. I recently posted a report here about the finds I made on a trip to the Wutach Valley and promised that the next time I went there, I would finally remember to take my camera along. For those of you who may not be aware, the Wutachtal (in German) is quite a large area and also the name of a municipality in the southeastern Black Forest region. Within this area are a good number of beautiful nature reserves, the best known of which is the Wutachschlucht, or Wutach Gorge in English. It's not quite as huge as the Grand Canyon, but is certainly comparable with the Verdon Gorge, a famous tour
  3. From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    3.5cm. From the Callovian herveyi zone in the Wutach Valley.
  4. Ludwigia

    Cadoceras quenstedti (Spath 1922)

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    4.cm. From the Callovian herveyi zone in the Wutach Valley.
  5. I set off this morning on my first excursion since my return from Canada. Now that I'm settled back in at home again, I was starting to twiddle my thumbs, so I figured it was about time to get back to the Callovian hillside sites in the woods of the Wutach Valley area. Rain was being forecast, but that didn't deter me. Just threw my raincoat, rubber overalls and boots into the car along with my equipment and off I went. I decided to check out a spot I'd already worked several times with varying results. This time it really payed off, since I managed to find a section in a familiar horizon whic
  6. Ludwigia

    Millericrinus sp. (D'Orbigny 1841)

    From the album: Echinodermata

    4cm. wide. Holdfast with tube worm passengers which is attached to a piece of a Macrocephalites sp. ammonite. Epibionts attached to an epibiont. This root definitely attached itself long after the ammonite sank dead to the sea floor and broke its shell. An extremely rare find for the Wutach Formation. Herveyi zone, Callovian. Found in the Wutach Valley.
  7. Ludwigia

    Macrocephalites verus (Buckman 1922)

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    5cm. With a pathology of the ribs on the venter. From the herveyi zone, Callovian in the Wutach valley area.
  8. From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    20cm. My best specimen of this species to date. Complete calcitized phragmocone. Herveyi Zone, Callovian. From the Wutach valley area.
  9. Ludwigia

    More Callovian finds.

    I decided yesterday to spend one more afternoon digging in the Callovian in Wutachtal before I set off this coming weekend to Canada for 3 weeks. I dug up a gigantic Macrocephalites ammonite which unfortunately was missing the entire phragmocone, so I left it on display by the outcrop. It's pretty hard work breaking out the hard layers of the socalled Rotes Erz Lager (red ore horizon) and chiseling them down bit by bit in the hopes that something's inside, but every once in a while something pops out which is worth keeping, like the 2 finds below which I finished prepping today.
  10. Ludwigia

    Belemnopsis sp. (Bayle 1878)

    From the album: Belemnites

    7cm. long rostrum. Along with a Macrocephalites sp. ammonite. From the herveyi Zone, Callovian, Middle Jurassic from the Wutach valley.
  11. Ludwigia

    Eudmetoceras amplectens (Buckman 1889)

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    The body chamber part measures 16cm. across. Discites zone, early Bajocian. Found in the Wutach Valley.
  12. From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    22mm. The innermost whorls. From the discites Zone, Early Bajocian in the Wutach Valley.
  13. I was out at my favorite spot in the Wutach Valley again on Tuesday and dug up a large one this time. It was in a huge block buried under a foot of dirt, leaves and rubble and first I thought that I'd struck bedrock, but that unfortunately didn't turn out to be the case. The area I'm exploring is an old landslide in the woods on the side of a small mountain and although I've found at least one spot where I can start following the bedrock layers up and down, I'm discovering more and more that the whole slope is just full of landslips and floes at various levels, so it's hardly possible to get y
  14. From the album: German Gastropods and Bivalves

    Diameter 7cm. Found in the Callovian layers in the Wutach Valley.
  15. Ludwigia

    Choffatia sp. (Siemiradzski 1898)

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    30cm. A good portion of a large specimen. What can be seen is only the phragmocone. The original shell including living chamber could have been up to half a meter in circumference. From the early Callovian in the Wutach Valley.
  16. From the album: German Gastropods and Bivalves

    6cm. With a partial Chlamys textoria bivalve. Steinkern on one side, shell on the other. From the Middle Jurassic Callovian at Buchberg in the Wutach Valley.
  17. With a phragmocone this size, it must have been quite a large specimen in real life. An extremely rare find for SW Germany.
  18. Inner whorls of the phragmocone.
  19. Calcite mold of the phragmocone.
  20. Ludwigia

    Lissoceras sp. (Bayle 1879)

    Inner whorls of the phragmocone.
  21. Inner whorls of the phragmocone. Attached to the echinoid Holectypus depressus.
  22. Ludwigia

    From Bathon to Callov

    Yesterday I decided to go looking for new exposures in the Wutachtal. I did a bit of research beforehand which helped me get my bearings in the woods, but I still ended up clambering about for a couple of hours before I finally reached the level that I was looking for. There just aren't all that many exposures in the Callovian and Bathonian in the underbrush, but I finally managed to locate a roughly beaten bridal path that led me to the Bathonian varians-Schichten and the Callovian Wutach Formation which I was looking for. The first is directly underneath the second and they
  23. A friend of mine told me last week that they'd started construction on a bypass around a small town in the Wutach area in the fall. They won't be really going at it until the springtime, but he visited the site last week and managed to find a couple of nice Hettangian ammonites on the scree pile, which was free of snow, since the temps are rising at the moment. So, since I was suffering from cabin fever, I figured I'd get out for some fresh air and give it a go. Well, there was lots of evidence of ammonites with a number of large body chamber pieces lying around, but it was obvious after a cou
  24. Ludwigia

    Plagiostoma giganteum (Sowerby 1814)

    From the album: German Gastropods and Bivalves

    11cm. long. From the lower Jurassic Hettangian Angulatenton Formation, angulaten Zone. Found at a construction site near a small town in Wutachtal township.This species is also alternatively named Plagiostoma gigantea (Boehm 1911). I still haven't figured out which one has priority.
