I work on a farm in Worcestershire, about 5 miles east of Worcester itself, situated on the very lowest strata of the Jurassic lower lias. I have spent many hours finding fossils on the farm.
The farmer has lived there all his life. When he was 12, he found a well preserved, complete ammonite, with which he was delighted. He took it to show his geography teacher, and never saw it again. The disappointment has remained to this day. For his forthcoming 70 th birthday, I would like to acquire a replacement ammonite. Can anyone suggest the probable species it might have been, possibly with connection to the photographs attached. If anyone has one they can spare, I would be most grateful. Thanks.

Hello, I see a lot of lower Lias fossils. On the last picture the big bit might well be Platypleuroceras sp.

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