Could anyone help with the identification of this please? It was found in my garden in Harlow, Essex

It the impression of a boss of a sea urchin plus some of the surrounding test (outer layer).
The boss is where a spine was attached to the body.
The rock is flint so the urchin lived in The Chalk and is at least 65 million years old.
Nice find.
