Just tried to edit that but its time expired - what I wrote above sounds a bit ungrateful - not my intention at all! I wanted to say that a coeloteuthine belemnite from these beds would be quite exciting, not heard of any before!

I just checked the setting... 5 minutes to edit a post isn't very generous! :smile: I upped it to 60 minutes. (note, Supporters are unlimited... this is to contain bad behavior; otherwise people could go back to old posts and try to edit them to add in spammy links)

For what it's worth you didn't seem ungrateful to me :smile:

Great pics!

Thanks, Tony!

I'm still leaning towards this being a belemnotheutid type of coleoid (Belemnotheutis, Chondroteuthis).
Coeloteuthis Lissajous, which has to be interpreted according to the lectotype of Belemnites excavatus Phillips, is a "normal" fat belemnite, and doesn't seem to be very similar to this specimen.
