Schatzky Distance

The Schatzky Distance is a parameter that is used as a diagnostic feature to identify certain types belemnites. Within the family Belemnitellidae, this parameter plays an important role in the differentiation between species. The disadvantage is that it is not easily measured without splitting the belemnite lengthways.
