Camptostroma roddyi (Hundt, 1939). Kinzer formation, Bonnia-Olenellus Zone, early Cambrian. Found in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, US. Bought as Ebay purchase. This animal is about 4cm in diametre. An early Cambrian echinoderm that is called a stem echinoderm as it is said that many types of echinoderms arose from this animal. This species is the only animal in the family of its own, Camptostromatoidea.
So excited when this echinoderm I bought online arrived today! It is Camptostroma roddyi specimen from a private property at Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, from the Kinzer Formation. I dont know much about this enigmatic Cambrian echinoderm nor the formation it came from but I cant wait to add this to my small collection of echinoderms.
