Dactylioceras ammonite communes in country rock are from Schlaifhausen, Germany are a widespread genus of ammonites from the Jurassic Period of the Mesozoic Era approximately 172 million years ago. Dactylioceras are abundant throughout Europe, with exceptionally fine Dactylioceras specimens found in Germany. Mass mortalities such as these specimens suggest that these ammonites may have died after shortly after spawning.
Dactylioceras ammonites are also found in the Jurassic beds along the Yorkshire, England coastline. They are about 180 million years old and were spiral-shelled relatives of octopus and squid. Ammonites died out in the same extinction event that killed off the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.
