I suspect Xipheroceras ?dudriesieri which should come from the Obtusum Zone of the Black Ven Marl Member (Charmouth Mudstone Formation).  In this species, the Macroconch shell rapidly gains strong tubercules (as yours) but these diminish in prominence as the shell grew bigger.

That is a fantastic specimen of ammonite!  How did you manage to chip away at the matrix or crack the rock open and leave the fossil in such perfect condition?

Hello Gerald , It was in a nodule that actually popped nearly perfectly . The spines were in the negative and i got as many out as i could and glued them back on...it was a very lucky pop 😁 20190921_154806.jpg

NIce job!  And you didn't use chemicals, only glue.  Usually parts of such a fossil break off and shatter.  Your specimen has a museum-like quality.  Wow!

I used a Ken Mannion tt pen to clear the centre and get the tips of the spines out of the other half 😁
