Details

Emericiceras barremense ammonite 370mm specimen by The Fossil Store. These open whorl cephalopods are found in the Barremian stage, approximately 129 to 125 million years, in the early or lower Cretaceous period.


At this time the Cretaceous as far as Cephalopoda were concerned, underwent an explosion of diversity in the Ammonoidea group, since their beginnings in the Ordovician around three hundred million years earlier, their increase and diversity had not seen such a continual rise until this point in the Cretaceous. These developments reflect the unique morphological changes in their shapes and size as seen with the Emericiceras fossil ammonite featured here.
