Went to Redcar this afternoon and amazed what change there has been in the last six months or so - much more shingle and rock exposed, but did not find much other than the usual superfluity of Gryphaea, and this little ammonite - any thoughts Schloethemia?   Thanks  Peter Ryder

I think you've guessed it, although the proper spelling is Schlotheimia. Named after the German paleontologist Ernst Friedrich von Schlotheim.
Best wishes from the Lake of Constance. Roger.

Thanks Roger
My spelling was from memory!
I think it is one of the commoner Redcar ammonites - the other common one has a keel; good to know origin of name

Would these specimens also be found at Ravenscar (left of the fault line) ?
