Species ID Eupatagus urchin

mr fossil

Recommended Posts

I found this fossilized echinoid that I suspect is from the genus Eupatagus, up until now I’ve done some research and I haven’t found it’s species, I found it in coral reef limestone from 120000 years ago interglacial period. The fossil was found in the city of Jeddah on the east coast of the Red Sea. 
could this be a new species?

I think we would need more photos of the other side and maybe the sides to say anything more about it.
