Starry Skate Distribution

Starry Skate © Marc Dando.To date, Starry Skate eggcases have been reported from a very limited number of locations in England, from the east coast of Ireland and one record from Cardigan Bay, Wales.

This eggcase is distinctive due to its relatively small size - a capsule length of approximately 35mm.
