Hi Gabor
I think ammonite AB could be Merlaits

Here's some of mine:

And now a real monster...

47 cm diameter, 23 kg.

IMG_7452.JPG 

Eroded and unknown. I do not think, it is a Lytoceras.

I lived without car when I found this giant in the early 80ies. 10km from the old quarry to the nearest bus stop - it was a hard trip with this dead and heavy animal on my back...

Well worth the trip Gabor.
A hard won fossil that you will remember for a long time.

Really impressive!

They don't get that big over here!

This is also a big Ammonites, badly eroded. I found in a small abandoned quarry, directly above Upper Triassic so probably coming from Lower Liassic.

It is interesting that I can not see any part of a suture in this piece. I have lots of eroded Ammonites, but you can see their sutures even if they are eroded too.

It seems like a Phylloceras.

Diameter is 32 cm.

This is the only Gastropoda, I found in the ammonitico rosso. (While Cephalopodes are easy to find, other fossils are very rare here. The luckiest findings is a skeleton of a Jurassic crocodile found in 1996 - unfortunately not be me )

Hi Gabor
AG could be Fibuloceras

This is one of mine (the photo's no good):

Hi beatpete,

are you sure the spelling of the name Fibuloceras?

I searched this name on internet, but nothing found.

Hi Gabor
In the Italian literature, Fibuloceras is a Dactylioceratid related to Nodicoeloceras or Telodactylites

Maybe it's a synonym, try Telodactylites

Hi,

I loved looking at all those pictures of your ammo's they are really beautiful. I will start an Austrian thread when I have some spare time. This will be from my trip last year. I think the red lias is similar.

Kind regards,

Paul

Hello Light,

I do not know if the same red lias can be found in Austria. I have seen such layers in Italy, in the Dolomites (exactly in the Sella group).

Very Nice, that hildoceras just of centre to the left is stunning! Looks like a good trip, keep posting finds of any future trips.

Hi Gabor
I visited the ammonite site at Villany last summer, where there are some large specimens in the rock.
Have you been there too?

Hi Joydip,
 
I was there only one time in my life. I also saw large ammos there but the quarry on Templom-hegy (which is the most famous site) is protected and not allowed to collect fossils in it.

Thanks Gabor
Yes I know that it is a protected site. I have some pictures from Templom hegy that I want to share, if I can find them. BTW you have a very nice colection of Jurassic ammonites
