A recent acquisition that I bought just because it's beautiful.

Impressions of cidarids crop up quite often in Cretaceous flint but I've never been lucky enough to find one (and I live in the wrong area).

 

Probably Temnocidaris sp., Upper Cretaceous, Santonian, Kent coast, southern England.

 

Test fragment 13mm across

Very impressive.  I'd have jumped on that as well.

Thanks, Bobby, I'd like to see it if you can find it. This is from Northfleet but they can turn up all over the place.

There you go but I have not had the time to look for the label

Thanks, that's a belter of a bit! Prionocidaris maybe? - in that there seem to be at least five tuberculated interambulacral plates in a row.

Thanks it has also pretty nice details and I found it probably in the early 1990s . When I find the information I will add it to this thread. Have a nice weekend. Bobby
