Pseudogrammoceras fallaciosum ammonite from France

Here I have a nice pyritized specimen of the ammonite Pseudogrammoceras fallaciosum. from the Toarcian aged rocks (Jurassic) near Millau, Aveyron Department, France. The gently curving external ribbing has been preserved as has the complex internal suture pattern. Each volution of the whorl covers approximately 60% of the previous. The specimen is missing the living chamber.

Another view of the complex sutures.

Thanks to Gery for sending me this fossil!
