This new genus of Liassic ammonite starts off resembling a Promicroceras then all the living chamber is virtually smooth in appearance unlike any other ammonite ever seen. There have been eight specimens so far discovered from this iconic locality. Six of which are registered with Oxford University Museum, One residing with Andy himself and this specimen. Alongside the Cowapi is a Promicroceras planicosta. The reverse side and all sides have been ground gem smooth and a high polish applied to reveal the classic Marston Marble. The latest Marston Magna paper signed by Andy accompanies this unique ammonite and inside you can read not only about this new genus of ammonite but about all the other specimens discovered during the nine year period.
