This little fellow ( ø 4.5cm.) won a couple of prizes here a few years back, so I figured it was time to duplicate him on paper. It's a complete male microconch specimen to the species called Stephanoceras and has its own name as a sub-species thereof: Normannites sp. The "ears", a characteristic which many male ammonites wear, are called lappets and there are a number of theories which try to explain their existence which I won't go into here.

Wow, thats a great bit of paleo-art!  Ive never seen that variety of ammo before.  The "ears" remind me of the old Roman soldier helmets.
