Invertebrate Ocean Beach Fossil?

Recommended Posts

Jeunji

Hi! I'm mostly here just because I'm interested in fossils haha, but I was wondering what this fossil might be? It's approx. 3-4 cm (pretty small!), and I also found it on the beach in Puerto Plata (Dominican Republic). This is more for curiosities sake, and just because I find them cool.

A fragment of a sea urchin/sand dollar (echinoid). I don't know if it is a fossil or modern

It's an ambulacral plate from an echinoid. I would guess a sand dollar or maybe Clypeaster.
