Sea urchins, starfish and relatives - Echinoderms

The Echinoderms are well represented in the geological collection by both complete and disarticulated specimens. Echinoderm remains are rare in the Paleogene of Hampshire. The majority of the collections were recovered from the Cretaceous which is present below most of the higher down land in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

The following list shows the entire collection of Echinodermata. Disclaimer: The following list may contain some synonymy duplication
