I found this Crinoid on Charnmouth beach, Devon, U.K. I am currently trying to label my collection and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the full species name is and an age of the fossil? Thank you in advance.

Very cool.  Next time I'm in the UK I need to spend a couple of extra days doing some fossil exploring

It's Pentacrinites fossilis, well known from there for forming in quite large, thin slabs. Mostly Upper Sinemurian, so about 190-195 my. (It's the west end of Dorset there, not quite Devon!)
