    It's a type of Echinoid (Sea Urchin)- although without knowing where it came from it'd be impossible to I.D. it as there are so many genera

    will have to put thinking cap on, only ideas i have are littlehampton ( lived there for a year) can not think of anywhere else i know of where i have seen them or found them. I know when i was there used to see loads on the beach but can not remember ever picking one up. ah well might be confined to the no idea box.
