Crinoid

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired a small collection; and most specimens were well described....except for a few specimens that at least had age, locality etc .......the attached specimen containing two crinoids  and calyx had VERY little information at all.  I believe it may be from Illinois, as this was the only information supplied with the specimen. Any help with identification would be greatly appreciated.

Location could narrow down a better ID. I'd do some searching on matrix differences for formation location if I were you. Both appear to be Mississippian crinoids though. Left looks like Cyathocrinites sp, right looks like Phanocrinus sp.

Thanks so much Crinus for taking the time to help with the ID of the crinoid photo I had posted; it's much appreciated.
