Hello
Can anyone help us please.  I'm a volunteer at Elgin museum, Moray, and we've a very large Jurassic ammonite in our collection which we can't identify.  The fossil was found probably 100-150 years ago in an erratic near Elgin.  Historically we had a few fossiliferous erratics of limestone which were quarried with fossils emerging from time to time.  I can imagine it's from the Jurassic of East Sutherland but my guide books don't offer much help.
Any i.d welcomed, thank you. download.jpg  download.jpg

It could be some kind of Perisphinctid, but that's as far as I can go, I'm afraid. And being in an erratic doesn't help, either.
Experts on this forum might be able to ID the fossil

Thanks your reply Estwing, yes it's a bit beaten up but your thoughts will give us something to go on.
