Some years ago I found a number of Liparoceras cheltiense at Blockley Quarry including this little one. I assumed it was a juvenile Liparoceras but having looked at it recently I'm having doubts. It has no sign of the rows of spines/lumps that the adults have, is it lacking in maturity or have I got the ID wrong?

Thanks Brian

Hello Brian, I think it is an Androgynoceras sp. (wich is related to Liparoceras.)

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

Is it still possible to collect in Blockley? If so how do you go about it?

Thanks all it shall be renamed. I don't know about collecting in Blockley now, the last time I went was an organised trip with the Harrow and Hillingdon GA about 20 years ago..

...an Androgynoceras sp. (wich is related to Liparoceras.)

Can I ask for opinions about this Blockley specimen, which seems to change from one to t'other?

Hello, there is an Androgynoceras wich shows this feature: A. hybridum, but there is also a Liparoceras wich does this: L.henleyi, I do not know whether they are synonyms...
Andy will know this.

One more Elbert, here's a Liparoceratid from the Lower Pliensbachian near Radstock, Jamesoni Zone?
Any ideas?

Hello, another Liparoceras yes, looks like L. cheltiense, but I am no expert on these ammonites...so please confirm if possible.

A few more from Blockley, I think they are all L. cheltiense but I've been known to be wrong, frequently.
