I just came across these in my storeroom and have no idea what they are, well apart from an urchin of some kind! Any help is appreciated!

They're blastoids rather than echinoids. Someone may recognise where they're from - probably not the UK as they're pretty rare here and I haven't seen any like that.

Oh they definitely aren't from the UK, I was thinking Morocco but it appears they may be from Indonesia!

They look like Deltoblastus from the Permian of Timor.

I have just googled that and I agree! Thank you very much for the id.

 

I had never heard of a blastoid till now so I stand corrected on the Urchin statement!

 

Cheers!
