Large 9" Ammonite (Romaniceras?) - Goulmima, Morocco

 
This is a large, 9" wide ammonite collected North of Goulmima, Morocco. These ammonites are Upper Cretaceous (Early Turonian Stage) in age. I believe the genus is Romaniceras but, I'm not 100% certain, particularly given that the paper on these ammonites was written on much more poorly preserved examples than this specimen. It is certainly one of the rarer genus of ammonites from the locality as it's the first I've seen.

The scientific paper describing this ammonite assemblage can be found at: http://data.over-blog-kiwi.com/0/52/28/44/ob_159f69_kennedy-et-al-2008-goulmima.pdf
