I bought this multi block some years ago from an old collection with only the top right ammonite identified as Stephanoceras sp. The smaller ones underneath I presume are Codoceras sp. But I wondered if anyone could id the top left ammonite and if possible a suggested location for it. My apologies for posting it in this section if it turns out not to be British.

Thank you, Dave.

Hi Dave,
The small one on the left looks like Cadomites, the large one could be some kind of Sonninia or Euhoploceras, and the Stephanoceras could well be Skirroceras

Anywhere for little ammonites, twice as far for big ones!

I'll go along with Pete here, although I'm not sure if Cadomites (upper Bajoc to Bathon) occurs together with the other ones (lower to middle Bajoc)

Yeah, Cadomites should be a bit more recent, but it's definitely one of the family
I found this:

although I don't know how outdated it is

Probably oitoites rather than cadomites. I am unconvinced that the two larger ones occur in the same horizon myself. Defi skirroceras macrum and some sort of sonninid ammonite.

I wonder how common it is for fossils to mixed up together in a fake way? Very common I suspect!

I agree on Otoites, Byron:
