Holderness grammoceras

Hi,

 

I bought this off the internet.  I've got a question for tabfish- is it rare to find this species in holderness or is it a common find?

    Hi Dan

    Sorry but it is not a Grammoceras, although what you have is still very nice.

    You have an Eleganticeras elegantulum from the Upper Lias - Lower Jurassic and what makes it interesting is it is in a partial 'cannon ball' limestone nodule that sometimes contain several of these specimens.

    Grammoceras sp are a bit more scarce but you you can occasionally find them, usually in multiblocks.

    1, Grammoceras

    2, Eleganticeras

    3, left Eleganticeras right Grammoceras

      Hi Dan

      The best place to find Grammoceras sp in my opinion is at Ravenscar to the south of the 'peak fault' if you are very lucky you will find them on the beach because this is the area were they come from, keep away from the cliffs because they will colapse without warning.
