• Geological Age: Miocene period, Gambier limestone.
• Location: Mt. Gambier, South Australia
• Family: Echinoderm
• Species: Prowillungaster minor
A small, rare echinoid fossil specimen, prowillungaster minor exhibit a flat, disc shape body. Due to it’s small size of 7 mm, not many morphological features can clearly be seen, however, for the more serious collector, this echinoid will no doubt fill a space.
Prowillungaster minor echinoid fossil collected from the Gambier Limestone of Mt Gambier, Southern Australia. These Echinoids lived within a shallow open marine shelf environment which submerged Southern Australia during the Miocene epoch approximately 5 - 23 Mya. These echinoids are approximately 7 mm in diameter but naturally this may vary slightly. Each specimen is supplied individually within a small plastic bag with an information label.
