Starry Skate Eggcase & Map

Maximum Eggcase Length: ~10cm (ranges from 7–13cm)
Eggcase Length (without horns): ~3.5cm (ranges from 3-4cm)
Maximum Eggcase Width (with keels): ~3cm (ranges from 2.5–3.5cm)

Range: In the East Atlantic, the Starry Skate is present from Iceland and Norway down to the southern North Sea.

Similar Eggcase: The square shape is similar to the Thornback Ray. But this small eggcase has a very distinctive texture.

Great Eggcase Hunt Records: All verified eggcase records are from the North Sea, with the exception of one unusually large specimen found in Borth (Wales) which is outside of the expected range. Verified records are from Shetland down to Suffolk, including scientific surveys of underwater eggcases, and some submissions from the coast of Denmark.
