I found this fossil today on the beach at Hornsea. Is it some kind of coral?
I am fairly sure it is a crinoid crown, near the arboral cup.
For 'crown' and 'arboral cup', see http://palaeo.gly.bris.ac.uk/palaeofiles/fossilgroups/crinoidea/page2.html
On this page, you'll see a fuller fossil crinoid showing the same area - http://palaeo.gly.bris.ac.uk/palaeofiles/fossilgroups/crinoidea/page4.html
...So you can 'see' your specimen better.
Thanks for the ID and the links.
