An A level geology student found this at West Angle bay in Pembrokeshire. Lower Carb/Devonian. Any positive identification would be marvellous. Many thanks. Mark

Hi Mark, welcome to the forum! I'm pretty sure it's a crinoid head with splayed out arms - crinoids are common there and there's more stem and stuff bottom left. A nice find. [smile]

Hello and welcome to the forum. I would say it's a crinoiid 'holdfast' where the echinoderm attaches itself to the seabed / rock etc, but I may be wrong - a nice find though!

Holdfast is possible but it looks as if it has pinnules which I think you only get on the arms.
