'WOODSTONE' WITH AMMONITES - JURASSIC, LYME REGIS.


Promicroceras planicosta (Sowerby) with plant, Pagiophyllum sp.

Hand sized slab of grey limestone 'Woodstone'. One surface shows a ' Y' shaped branch of some sort of conifer (generally referred to as Pagiophyllum). Wedged into the angle of the branch are two 3D calcitic Promicroceras with a third Ammonite out on the edge of the block. The driftwood would have become waterlogged and sank to the sea bed where dead Ammonite shells would have been washed up against the vegetation by currents. Lovely example of a 'classic' association from Lyme Regis / Charmouth.

Matrix :  12 x 12 x 4 cm.

Jurassic, Upper Sinemurian, Charmouth Mudstone Formation, Obtusum Zone.
Black Ven, Lyme Regis / Charmouth, Dorset.
