Hi,NatMan.
That's a very nice claw!
I was looking through the old archive ' The Yorkshire Lias' by Ralf Tate and J.F.Blake (1876) and found that there was a similar crustacean drawing to what you have found.
It's an image of Pseudoglyphaea Etalloni,oppel.

So my guess would be Pseudoglyphaea sp.

Hi, on my recent (wet) week in Whitby found this claw in a nodule at Saltwick Bay. Any help with ID appreciated!

Can't help with id, but thats a fantastic find, will you do any prep or leave it as it is?

Looks like a Glyphaea, but the more interesting question is : Have you got the rest of the nodule ?

I have the rest of the nodule so maybe theres more to uncover, however my prepping skills are not yet up to it!

Excellent lobster claw, well done. It could potentially turn out very nice with some professional prep work.

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

Very nice, i didnt spot even a hint of a crustacean when i was fossiling there, apart from the many modern crabs which according to my mum were following her lol.
thanks
