Are you sure this one is from Staithes ?
Looks more like a Crucilobiceras to me, could still be an erratic, but would usually not occur in the exposures around Staithes

Could it be Apoderoceras? Would that fit in better with Staithes?

Thx Guys....could be Kettleness/Runswick Bay. If they got mixed up but I don't think so...I'm normally pretty careful about keeping them separate

Hi Andy, Do you think a positive ID would be OK if I prepped it a little down to the inner whorl?

I’m pretty sure it’s a Crucilobiceras, and it would be wrong for Runswick/Kettleness as well.
But erratics can appear everywhere (or Dave lost one of his...).

Apoderoceras btw does not normally occur at Staithes or Runswick Bay / Kettleness either.

Oh, btw a keel picture would probably be enough for a positive Id

Hi Andy. See attached Keel photo. Looks a little worn. Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20190814_194249.jpg, Views: 29, Size: 92.58 KB
