Specimen above found at Crinnis Beach, Carlyon Bay, St. Austell, Cornwall, 21.03.10.

Not considered a true sea bean / seed in the UK as the species comes from India and Southern Asia, so would be expected to wash-up on shores of the Pacific, not the Atlantic. Seed here likely thrown overboard from a passing ship.

The main objective of this website is in furthering environmental awareness and education through the medium of photography. To increase awareness and access to the wildlife of the region and help
people find and identify it. Sometimes the difference between species is obvious but many species can only be determined by observing microscopic characteristics that are specific to any one species.
