Hi
Can anyone ID this ammonite found at Marske near Redcar?

Phileas fossilis
Hi my first instinct is Arnioceras sp. Someone more familiar with ammonites from the area will probably give an exact species soon.

I think its possibly a Coroniceras. Without my books I cant pin it down any further.

I think Coroniceras is more likely. I guess one of the glacial erratics.

This is a big piece of a big Euagassiceras resupinatum (syn sauzeanum). Found many of these before myself but the big ones are never complete.. :-( although i do have a 12 inch one. 
Phileas these aren't glacial erratics as the beds where they come from actually lie just offf to sea.

note to ammonite nuts notice the trapezoid cross section of the outer whorl.

Sorry Byron, I donƒâ€š‚´t think Euagassiceras develops keel furrows that deep, not even (or especially) at this size. More likely to be one of the Coroniceras...

It could have been ice rafted - must be many tons of such material on the coasts up there - dropstones I think they call them.

 

The other possibility is that what is offshore now may have been onshore then.

I dug my copy of Schlegelmilch out. Arietites gallicus (Tafel 15 Fig 2) looks a reasonable match. Is this a possibilty for up there I have never been myself?
