Picked this up in bexhill this morning.

Looks like a fish scale of some kind?

Hi Henry
I believe this is a Fulcral scale possibly from Sheenstia. I have a similar specimen and the ID was suggested by Chris Duffin. I confess I had to Google 'Fulcral scale'!

Thanks Alan

I've just looked up fulcral scales!

I see where you're coming from. I'm not sure if the scale I found is a bit too short and flat, but it's probably the area I need to be looking into.

Thanks again
