Amaltheus margaritatus ammonite fossil collected from Jurassic, Mid Lias sediments in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire. Amalteus is an extinct genus of ammonite; in Europe these ammonites are indicative of the Pliensbachian stage of the Jurassic. This specimen has a relatively compressed, evolute shell with very slightly curved, smooth ribs which protrude at the ventral margin forming a recognisable keel. The shell measures approximately 3 cm in diameter and is supplied in a small plastic bag with an information label.
