This week I have a really tough one for you. It’s a specimen I found in our collections with a tentative identification that I was unconvinced by. I followed my instincts and they led me not only to a more accurate identification, but also to the rest of the specimen, from which it had been separated before they even arrived at the Horniman. Can you work out what it is?
Please feel free to ask questions and make observations or suggestions in the comments section below and I’ll do my best to respond. Good luck!
