 Sphenodiscus lenticularis, Fox Hills Formation, South Dakota. Late Cretaceous (~ 70 mya). Both sides of this handsome specimen display the extraordinarily intricate suture patterns that are characteristic of this species. Also evident is part of the beautifully iridescent nacreous layer. A laterally flattened ammonite, this animal is thought to have been a relatively fast swimmer.
