Hi Michelle, Is it possible to send an image to me? firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you, Mark.
Certainaly looks like the Draughtboard Shark egg to me too. On the species page Mark has written "Females lay distinctive flask-shaped egg cases that have 19 to 27 strong transverse ridges". Neat way to ID a shark egg case.
