Hey all, 

i found this in shale matrix near Whitby in England.

 

Guessing it’s ichthyosaur but does anybody know what type of bone it is? Wish more was preserved in the area i found it haha

Liam,

Are there any crustaceans found there?

This looks like arthropod shell, rather than bone, to me. :unsure: 

 

Hope you don't mind, I've cropped and contrasted your photo a bit.
