Hi guys, I’ve done a bit of prepping of this ammonite I found in Salwick Bay, Yorkshire a few weeks ago and have no idea what it is. There are two obvious tubercles and there may have been more but as you can see it isn’t in great shape..

I think it's rather a nice ammonite. 

Don't think those are tubercles though, just horrid bits of gloopy matrix.

I think you’re right, that would explain why there’s no sign of other tubercles.

 

So it probably is some species of dactylioceras.
