“Wants list” lower lias

The next three posts will be quite dull – no pictures, just lists of ammonites I´m looking for to photograph for the book.

Let me re-iterate the conditions :

  • Found on the Yorkshire coast  – or –
  • Found on the Redcar & Cleveland coast (Redcar, Marske,…)  – or –
  • Found in the quarries around Scunthorpe

The first post is the lower lias one.

Bear with me if the list is not completely perfect – I´m still sorting through it to weed out the ones that are synonyms, have only ever been found or pictured once, etc.
If you have any information to that effect, please also let me know !

What do you do if you think you have one of the ammonites on the list ?

Simple : Post a comment in the specific post (you have to leave your e-mail address but noone else but me can see it) and I will contact you !

    Hello Andy,
    I’ve just stumbled on your blog; I curate a large private collection. We have a few of these, including Uptonia jamesoni, a couple of various Liparioceras and Echioceras (and likely others just not on the database). Most of very high provenance. Happy to send high-res photos (when time allows!). Do drop me an email. Best, Nathan.

    Hi. I think I may have a Cymbites from the holderness coast. Also in the same block there are 3 other ammonites, which look like Arnioceras but don’t seem to quite match any of the species. If your interested in having a look you can see pictures on the Discuss fossils website.
