Plate Of Rare Cretaceous Starfish (3 Types) - Morocco

This is a plate of detailed, and rare Early Cretaceous starfish fossils from Taba, Morocco. There are at least three types present, the largest being Betelgeusia orientalis. There are a pair of Marocaster coronatus and a pair of a third type which I can not ID. I recently acquired a small number of several types of starfish from this locality, and I have not previously seen them offered for sale.
