FamilyECHINOIDEA
NameHolopneustes undescribed - OUTSTANDING GIANT
Size52.9 mm
LocalitySouth Australia
NoteOn offer is an unnamed Holopneustes species that remains without a formal taxonomic name today; Ashley Miskelly mentions this species on pages 66-67 of his 2002 book 'Sea urchins of Australia and the Indo-Pacific'. Here, he distinguishes this species from other Holopneustes by, for instance, the distribution and proportion of the primary, secondary and miliary tubercles, as well as 'the absence of a small secondary tubercle immediately above the main primary tubercle of each interambulacra plate'. The specimen on offer is extremely large, very vibrant and absolutely superb, and clearly exhibiting the features as outlined by A. Miskelly that distinguishes this intriguing, rarely seen species. In exquisite condition. This urchin has been subjected to a range of preparation processes perfected over decades. Resulting in superb colour and structural integrity, this proprietary method facilitates the longevity and long-term beauty of the specimen.
