Hello, Finally found a decent Iggy vert. But if someone can give it a quick glance, that would be super.

A recent find from the stretch of beach between Chilton Chine and Grange Chine on the Isle of Wight, England. It is from the Wessex Formation, about 130 million years old (Early Cretaceous). The bone is quite rolled by the sea but there are still some features remaining and so i was hoping it could still be identified, at least perhaps the type of bone that it is (either the end of some kind of long bone or a metapodial.

This was my most ambitious tour of the UK's Mesozoic and Cenozoic vertebrate deposits thus far, with 20 days of collecting across ten different locations. These were (in chronological order from first visit): Abbey Wood in East London Beltinge in Kent Bouldnor on the Isle of Wight Compton Bay to Grange Chine on the Isle of Wight Lyme Regis to Charmouth in Dorset Aust Cliff in Gloucestershire
So recently I got to go back to the Isle of Wight for a few days and not be bound to an area of study. Since this was more of a break I choose different areas I hadn't been fortunate to visit yet. I found numerous finds of which a few I'm unsure about. If anyone could assist that would be great. All finds are from the Wealden Group this is a early Cretaceous era deposit. 1) This was from yaverland and pulled directly from the cliff face where only the small section was exposed. It is about 5cm long and 3 Cm wide at its widest. It appears to resemble the shape of bone and in some pl
