The ammonite Amoeboceras serratum usually found destroyed from tumbling around in the Ice Age glacial till but not this one. 😉
With the aid of the Fossils of the Oxford Clay book these ammonites would appear to be Kosmoceras spinosum. Unfortunately the exact location is unknown only the fossils were found from the Oxford Clay of Whittlesea.
Ammonite: Kosmoceras spinosum (?)
Geological Age: Jurassic. 157 myo
Stratigraphic Detail: Middle Oxford Clay
Have any other SDGS members collected these in the past.
Actinostreon marshii (Sowerby 1814) used to have the genus name Lopha but it is assumed nowadays that this mollusc is not related to the modern day Lophas. The old oysters of this type are presently placed under the family of the Palaeolophidae, which was suggested by Malchus in 1990.
I’ve had this serpulid Serpula sulcata for a few months on loan from a good friend. And now after closer inspection I’m quite sure I can see bioimmurations of the hydroid Protulophila gestroi Roverto indicated by the red arrows.

Thank you “Bill”….still lot’s more fossils to get through.
It’s not that often you get to say “there’s more to this than meets the eye “
A fine example showing a section of the bony-scaled fish Lepidotes latifrons from the Mid Jurassic, Lower Oxford Clay (Peterborough Formation) found by one of our SDGS members. This fossil is allocated to go on permanent display for all to see…

Large section of tail, two large sections of jaw rami, several toothed blocks, many cranial fragments, lepidotrichial fragments and obligatory box of scales…

Pleistocene, Devensian, Mammuthus primigenius molar tooth from last week’s exclusive member’s field trip. More photos of finds to follow on the “NEW” SDGS database.

We are proud to announce a, soon to be released Database for members fossil collections designed by Stamford and District Geological Society member Richard Forrest (website designer for the “The plesiosaur site”) and (database designer for “CBRP Ltd”) .The Database has been crafted to reflect what fossils our members have found in the past. But also builds upon technology capable of addressing future fossil finds.
