This is one of many spatangoid urchins in the Ocala Limestone of Georgia.
It is found in the middle and upper parts of the Ocala.
The shell shape suggests a preference for sand bottoms, though some features hint that it might have tolerated some mud. It is generally found in the sandier parts of beds that have a mixture of the two types of sediment.
