I'm thinking the outer edge of a shell, but my friend thinks brittlestar (Shropshire, Wenlock Edge)


Recommended Posts



I went to Wenlock Edge in Shropshire a few days ago and collected some fossils. We're all confused as to what this one could be? It's around 5-6cm across.


Thank you!

I am not an expert. 

But I would agree with shell.

Looks more coral or bryozoan like to me.

A bryozoan, or maybe a very worn section of Helysites.
