Id Needed For Lower Jurassic Ammo

Hi all,

I found this ammo the other day when looking through a fresh clay slip at charmouth. It's about 23mm and although the centre isn't great there are many little spines around the top edge of the living chamber.

There is also a recess in exactly the same place on each side along the outer whorl.

Any ideas?

Nice find - that's a spiny one! It's a Crucilobiceras, pretty sure it's C. densinodulum.

Kind regards,

Joe

Cheers :)

There were more spines before I dropped it while cleaning it :(

I actually drew blood on my finger when trying to pull out of the clay :o

Very cool piece! Too bad about knocking those spines off.....
