Cheers Rob

Hello, the v shaped keel makes me think Oistoceras, but to be sure better pictures are needed.
Very nice piece! Where was it found?

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

Here’s some clearer pictures of the keel Bert.
As for where it was found it could of been just about anywhere. It was found many years ago before fossil collecting became an obsession. My wife thought Port Mulgrave, but I’m not convinced. The best I can say is it is definitely Yorkshire Coast as that’s the only place I’ve ever collected.

Hello, looking at these new pictures and considering the matrix I tend to change my first idea and I suspect it maybe is a lower Lias ammonite: Schloteimia angulata although Paltopleuroceras has also popped up in my mind.
Maybe Andy can tell with more certainty.
If  it was found at PM, it would have come from the boulderclay either way.

Thanks Bert
Just googled Schloteimia angulata and it looks very similar. If it’s from the boulder clay
would that mean it’s classed as an erratic?
Cheers Rob
