Please can anyone identify this shell? We found it on Oxwich Beach in Swansea.
It's a Sea potato, a type of sea urchin that lives in sand, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Echinocardium_cordatum ,ie the bare test of it without the spines. (You can also find live ones there too,in or on the sand)
Thank you very much for the information!
