Hi,
I found this fossil down port mulgrave and thought it was a broken part of a rather large annomite. However on inspection it’s looks a little unual to me. It’s about 100mm long by 50mm and 50mm by 20mm the other way. Although I am fascinated by fossils I pretty much have no fossil knowledge, so any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like a partial whorl of a badly beaten up ammonite and is that the siphuncle I see in the cross sections?

Pete is spot on, someone will be able to tell the genus from these photos  would think, but not me!

Part of the crushed whorl of an Hildoceras, IMHO
