Welcome to the forum.
Cenoceras
is the only genus that seems to be found in the Lias. Not sure of the species and I don't think anyone's revised them for a long time.

It's probably a C. intermedium

I am in the process of removing the matrix from around it and it appears to have a very deep umbilicus (if that part of the specimen is not missing) if that will help anyone.

Never seen a nautilus from Penarth, usually seem to just be at Lavernock, but are difficult to find these days?
