    I think this is a wonderful mass of ammonoids (Popanoceras, Metalegoceras and others) and orthocones. The two largest Popanoceras individuals are each about 25 mm across. This is from the Lower Permian of Aktubinskya.

    I think your right Hajar, really wonderful! I love the little orthocone on the left.

    Very nice Goniatites! Late Paleozoic concretions always seem to be packed with ammonoids and orthocones. :grin:

    I've not seen much written on this cephalopod limestone, but it's incredibly rich and diverse. Here's a pile of Kazakh cephalopods thrown together on my desk.
