Species Name: Lytoceras
Age: Jurassic, Upper Lias, 200 to 180 million years old.
Location: Lozere, France
Lytoceras sp ammonite collected from the Jurassic, Upper Lias rocks of Lozere, France which date back 180 to 200 Mya. Lytoceras are an extinct genus of ammonite which are found all over the world but fairly common in Western Europe. Their relatively compressed, smooth shell implies that they were fast swimming active carnivores. These particular examples measure approximately 1 cm in diameter. Each specimen is supplied in a small plastic bag with an information label.
