CLYPEUS WITH 'BITE' MARK - JURASSIC, FRANCE.


Clypeus plotti Salter.

Fine matrix free complete test. The upper surface shows an irregular 1.5 cm. long groove. This has to be a tooth mark from a predator. The thinness of the groove would suggest a large fish. Echinoids can be preyed upon by starfish and gastropods but this looks more like a tooth drag mark.

Jurassic, Bajocian.
Jaulnay, Lorraine, France.

Echinoid : 8.2 x 8.2 x 2.2 cm.
