Mississippian Crinoid

Recommended Posts

Here's a crinoid I found the other day in the Menard Limestone (Chesterian series). I'm not so sure of what genus it may belong to.

Hello Matt! It appears as though you have an Aphelecrinus. I can't be 100%, but based on the primibrachs, it resembles Aphelecrinus. If you are able to clean some of the remaining arms on the right, it might help firm up the ID. Nice find!
