I have come across some nice Belemnites in the Cotswold waterpark area, the large ones I believe are Cylindoteuthis pusoziana, the smallest one Belemnopsis bessina? But I may be wrong do you know better?

Hi Mark - top to bottom
1) Yup - Bellenopsis bessina
2) Hibolites /hustata
the rest Cylindroteuthis puzosiana I'm pretty certain

I agree with Colin apart from no. 2 - I'm pretty sure it's a juvenile Cylindroteuthis. It should have a furrow at the apical end. Hibolites has one in the alveolar region that dies out towards the apex.
