Hi all!
I've found this amazing piece last week at Grange Chine, Brighstone Bay, Isle of Wight .
A pair of crustacean claws in a flintstone-pebble.
The upper one measures 38 mm.
Can you help me with the ID?

Sorry for this stupid auto-correture. It's " Isle of Wight " ;-)

I cannot help with identification but what a superb find - I have never seen lobster in flint before. 
I would think NHM or Oxford Museum of Natural History would be interested in this

I think it must be Enoploclytia leachii but what a bizarre find

If you don't look, you won't find.
