Congratulations!

 

Beautiful specimen of such an interesting life form. Cystoids, blastoids, and crinoids are definitely on my bucket list. I can only hope to one day find something this special.

 

Cheers.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments. This cystoid was completely unexpected. I was looking for Ceraurus trilobites in the Prosser. I never found any Ceraurus but did find this cystoid.

That is a great find, and a great prep job, Gerry.  :wub:

I'm intrigued by the multiple brachioles on that specimen.  Every Pleurocystites I have seen have only 2, but yours seems to have four.  Also, have you considered P. distans as a possible ID?  Tom Bolton described that species from the Farr formation around Lake Temiskaming, which I think correlates with the Prosser (though I am not certain of that).
