Euhoplites lautus 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. These specimens exhibit strong ribs which slightly curve towards the aperture within the ventral third of the flank. They have a deep narrow ventral groove with tubercles running either side. The ammonites vary in size between 1 and 3 cm in diameter and are supplied in small plastic bags with an information label.
