Pentaceraster? sp.

Although not as tall as most figured species of Pentaceraster, the five bumps arranged in a pentagon middorsally and smaller bumps extending out onto the arms seem characteristic of that genus. These also look similar in shape to Bothriaster primigenius. These were both about 50 to 60mm in diameter.
