Trilobite and Crinoid ID

Recommended Posts

Ptychodus04

All right TFF family, my friend who owns a local rock shop is in need of IDs for some trilobites and a crinoid. I think these are probably from Morocco as most of the collection these came from are Moroccan and the trilobite prep looks typical of the area.

The stem on the crinoid suggests Platycrinites.  The twisting flattened oval cross-section is characteristic.

Thanks Don, this gives me somewhere to start.

BTW. The crinoid is not from Morocco.  It is from Crawfordsville, Indiana.  Just making sure he knows this information.
