I’m after an ID please I’ve got this ammonite of a friend. It was part of an old collection. All that we know is it was found at Marske in Cleveland. Well that’s what the old label on the back says.
cheers Rob

Hello, this ammonite resembles Euaggassiceras, possibly E. resupinatum and it checks out with the geology at Marske/Redcar.
Nice piece; would not mind at all having that in my collection...

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Hi all
Just a suggetion: could it be Asteroceras? The section seems less square-ish than in Euagassiceras, and doesn' t seem to have those kind of spines near the ventral area

Estwing - the whorl section is entirely different!

Well, it doesn't look like it to me, IMHO the whorl section in Euagassiceras is more square, whereas in Scrumpy's ammonite it is clearly ovate, as in Asteroceras.
I've put them one next to each other in this picture (I hope AndyS will forgive me for taking one from his website):

Maybe I got it all wrong, but I can see a resemblance

Hello, I think Estwing`s suggestion is the better  one...

A great specimen!  I agree with Estwing.  This is Asteroceras.
