Unusual and uncommon fossil ammonite parts with the given name Laevaptychus latus. Still being debated as to whether they are ammonite jaw parts or a protective cover. It is known they were paired and happen to fit the opening to the shell perfectly like an operculum of a snail. I have obtained a number of these in different sizes and these are the smallest at around 12 - 15mm long. They come from the Kimmeridge clay of Wiltshire and date to the Jurassic period. You will receive one of the fossils shown or similar. Although they will not be a natural pair I will supply similar but opposite sides to a pair if an even amount is purchased (as shown).
