Fossils from Solnhofen - Ammonites

 

Neocetoceras Neocetoceras

The ammonites of the solnhofen limestone deposits are the most common fossils from the Chephalopoda family. Belemnites, cuttlefishes and nautiluses also belong to this family, but those are not listed here. The most common ammonites are Neochetoceras sp. and Suplanites sp.. It is interesting that sometimes those ammonites where found with the so called Aptychus. The Aptychus is, according to different scientists, either a part of the mandible (jaw) or a cover lid.
