  20. I wanted to share what I think is exciting news about my NY crinoid that won fossil of the month here about a year ago. "Mike I am presently in Washington, DC visiting the Springer room at the Natural History Museum. The Springer room is where they keep all the crinoids; both type and non-types. You might be happy to know that your specimen is one of the reasons for the visit :-) We discussed what species of crinoid you collected and that prompted me to review the whole group. It has been almost 100 years since Goldring wrote the Devonian Crinoids of New York (1923) and I think we know a bit more now because of specimens like yours. Crinoids that are presently classified as Gennaeocrinus can probably be divided into at least three different genera and all Devonian species presently assigned to Aorocrinus need to be reviewed as well. I have photographed all examples of type specimens at the USNM. As is often the case, this has impacted on not only the taxonomy at the genera/ species level but has implications for both higher taxonomic levels as well as relationships with Silurian and Mississippian taxa."
