Studies of a 'Square Acarauna' (brought from Surinam, and known by mariners as 'The Old Wife'); a 'Mailed Fish of Brasile' (Brazil) - 'Cataphractus Schonveldii' in Grew's description; upper and lower views of a 'Smooth Star-Fish or Sea-Pad, Stella marina laevior ... sent from the East-Indies'; and a 'Crowned Star-Fish. Stella marina coronalis ... taken in the Danish-Sea'. Table 8 from the book Musaeum Regalis Societatis; or, A catalogue and description of the natural and artificial rarities belonging to the Royal Society, and preserved at Gresham Colledge, by Nehemiah Grew (second printing: London, 1686). The Royal Society's museum collection, or Repository, was established in the 1660s. It was intended to be "a General Collection of all the Effects of Arts, and the Common, or Monstrous Works of Nature", for use by the Fellows in their attempts to understand and classify the natural world.
