Could someone help me identify these ammonites please. This is just a selection of the gault clay ammonites i have so i have chosen a few so if i know the genus then i can be closer to identifying all the ones i have using the gaultammonite website. 

As you can see some have white patches on, is this part of their shell or is it oxidarion of some of the pyrite. I know that some of these are phosphatised and some are pyritised, this may seem like a silly question but are the more 'shiny' ones the pyritised ones.

1. Are these hamites?

Hi
 

Identity suggested by Thomas I would suggest is spot on, Dentatus is normally phosphatic, being a zone ammonite I believe, just above the green sand beds...Nice pictures, nice collection as well...

 

Regards to all who share the passion Mudbug.. 
S.H.T-N

Hi mudbug, I tried digging in the dentatus zone, Bed I at Folkestone on Saturday, however I only found fragments of Hoplites. It's a few inches above the yellow Sulphur Band.

ryjocl93, the white patches on the remains of the ammonites is the remains of its shell, this is quite fragile and easily destroyed. The more golden or rusty coloured ones are pyritic whilst the more brown or black ones are phosphatic.
