Found on Pett Level beach in the early morning while walking the hounds at low tide & there were many of these strange things washed up on the beach. Their texture was similar to a starfish but more solid. One of the dogs thought they were great fun & kept playing with them but later her mouth was quite sore as they seemed to have those hairs that sea urchins have (she was fine after 24 hours & antihistamines). I've a size 5 boot to give an idea of scale.

The first ID - Xylaria polymorpha - results from the Common Name prompting the wrong scientific one in the drop-down.
I am here researching for my own.
