Recently while working on Oxfordian belemnites from Kachchh (Western India) i have a large collection of belemnites, some of which i have started to identify but some are cereating problems.
what i get is
Hibolithes (H.) semihastatus semihastatus (ABUNDANT)
Hibolithes (H.) semihastatus rotundus (ABUNDANT)
Hibolithes stoliczkanus (Waagen 1873)
Duvalia soromarayensis Combemorell 1988 (RARE)
Belemnopsis muricatus Yang et wu 1964 (ABUNDANT)
Apart from this collection i am getting common occurrence of
conical belemnites (attached photo) which appears similar to that described by
Nitkin (1969) and chen (1982)
i have tentatively identified as Holcobelus
but after reading about this genus i came to know that in europe it commonly occurs in Alenian to Bajocian times?
could this specimen be Cylindroteuthis ?
or some other?
can any body help in identifying these?
Thanks & regards
