Flemingitid? Suture

Suture of the Flemingitid? the top is the last one

showing the suture near the umbilicus.

The specimen has a lot of phosphate replacement like most of the other fossils from this quarry. I dont know if this has deformed the suture line, some look distorted but for the most part, the suture line shown seems to be fairly well preserved.

Flemingitid ?

From my old "Meekoceras" quarry (in section DH-4), w/Aspenites, Inyoites, Proptychitid. Bed & stratigraphic position unknown but possibly equivalent to bed 9???
