Bobo the bear
Hi got this today at Port Mulgrave...really big chunk in a boulder so I managed to get a small lump   chip off the old block eh.
The first 4 photos are of the lump I took home the rest are in situ

Cone in cone, but a really fine piece.

Many thanks... See query below.IMG_20190617_130738.jpg  IMG_20190617_130807_BURST002.jpg  IMG_20190617_130832.jpg 
Have cleaned up an ammonite found between Boggle Hole and Ravenscar and have differing ID's. I thought it was a Haugia BUT the guy who cleaned it up said Eparitites possibly impudens.
Looked online and they both look similar so how do you tell?
Thought Haugia would be more common at this site.

I'm no ammonite expert but I'd say Haugia. It has sinuous ribs with the occasional bifurcation whereas Eparietites impendens has a simple curve to the rib and no bifurcations (at least in the illustrations I have).
Perhaps AndyS will look in...
