Pleuroceras transiens ammonite from Germany

A friend of mine, Roger, from Germany was in Canada visiting some of his family recently and I was able to meet up with him and do some trading. He primarily collects from his local Mesozoic exposures in southern and central Germany. I swapped some Trilobites with him and in return he gave me some Ammonites that he'd personally collected and prepped. Below is a Pleuroceras transiens ammonite from the Lias delta beds (lower Jurassic, upper Pliensbachian stage) near Goldbach, Germany.

Thank you to Roger for giving me this cool fossil. It's a nice comparison with Pleuroceras spinatum.
