Hello everyone.

I have a new fossil. It is found in the field in Java. Some people told that it is an ammonite fossil. Maybe my friends here have more advanced knowledge about it, I would very glad to listen.

Respectfully yours,

I agree; it seems like an internal mold, and there is no sign of the chamber walls that an ammonite would have.

The whorl shape of this snail is quite different from Maclurites. The spire is too high (it isn't flat enough on top), and in Maclurites there are fewer whorls and they are much broader, flat on top, and are widest at the shoulder not 1/3 of the way down. Also in Maclurites the length of the shell (top to bottom) is about 1/3 of the width, which is the opposite of the specimen here.
