Inyoites from my "Meekoceras" Quarry

One of the Inyoites found near my old "Meekoceras" quarry. Some of the saddles seem to have the same ammonitic character as the ?Flemingites below. This is starting to look like an artifact of preservation more and more. It would be nice to see how high on the saddles the serrations of the lobe go up on the inner parts of the septa, I would have to break the suture back to see this. The preservation is such that there seems to be quite a bit of erosion from the actual surface of the internal mold.
