Euhoplites alphalautus ammonite fossils collected from the Lower Cretaceous, Albian Gault Clays of Folkestone, Kent. Euhoplites is a genus of ammonoid which existed during Lower Cretaceous times. They are particularly attractive and well ornamented ammonites; this ornamentation would have prevented them from swimming at great speeds. This specimen exhibit strong ribs which slightly curve towards the aperture within the ventral third of the flank. It has a deep narrow ventral groove and the ribs terminate proudly and pronounced on the ventral lateral shoulder. In places the shell exhibits a nacreous lustre. The shell measures 2 cm in diameter. Supplied in a small plastic bag with an information label.
