This combination piece came from hammering on already busted up Limestone. The Pseudorthoceras is long in comparison to most exposed specimens I find. Usually they are buried or the pieces that are exposed fall apart at the septal margins. The Metacoceras in this piece shows excellent septal suture lines and I can see a raised spine on the opposite side.
I plan on working this rock, separating the two specimens. Attempting to keep the Pseudorthoceras in one piece will be tricky, but will make for a beautiful specimen. I will need to keep the base rock in one piece to support it. If it does end up coming out in pieces, I may glue it back together.
The Pseudorthoceras is about 100mm in preserved length.
