Internal flint mould of a Micraster echinoid

Internal flint mould of a Micraster echinoid

This excellent internal flint mould of a Micraster¬†echinoid was found in the late 1980s by my sister Naomi Shepherd during a family visit to Littlehampton’s West Beach (as it’s locally known). The specimen has featured in museum displays and also in various public talks on the subject; it’s perhaps the most ‘famous’ local specimen in my collection!
