A Deep Sea Echinoid in British Waters

Article metrics


ON Feb. 13 we took a single specimen of the Spatangoid Urechinus naresianus in a bucket-sample at 110 metres, seven miles south of Sanda, off the Mull of Kintyre. It was a young individual only, 5 mm. long. The general colour was whitish, and the tube feet yellow; two or three large pedicellariæ on the aboral side were tipped with deep red. The sample was a coarse shell gravel with a fairly large mixture of sand.
