This ammonite part was found in Oxfordshire by a friend. Just wondered if you might be able to add the type.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Where in Oxfordshire? I’m not familiar with there being any publicly accessible locations there but Cambridgeshire has a few 🙂.

I'll find out but picked up on ploughed field while the friend was metal detecting. Any thoughts on the species please?

Nearest village is Oakley, just inside Bucks border.

Geological map of the UK. Age would affect what species it could be. Click image for larger version - Name: 1AE916B0-CEE3-42EE-8172-45C6D65B42C0.jpeg, Views: 6, Size: 263.01 KB

Oxfordshire is mostly Jurassic but an exact location would help determine the geological formation leading to species identification.

As best as I can work out it’s Jurassic and continuation of Oxfordshire clay. I’m getting the feeling an ID isn’t possible from the photos?

It's either clay 157 to 164 myo slightly older Oxfordian - Callovian. I will look at my books tomorrow.

Hello Chris, apologies for the delay. I'm not able to even get this one to a genus I'm afraid as there is so little of it to go on.

Hi all
I don't know much about the stratigraphy of the area where it was found, but it does looks like the Pavlovia fragment in the picture:

Thanks for taking the time and effort, it really is much appreciated. I realise it was a bit of a long shot. I’ll pass on all the information and tell my friend to look out for more pieces.

Apologies for the anonymous Monica. It happened when I replied directly to the email notification of a new reply on my phone and didn’t go through the sign in steps. 

anyway, thanks again.
