Cupulocrinus Crown?


Uncle Siphuncle

Recommended Posts

Pops Woehr, my dear old dad, found this crinoid crown at Caesar Creek spillway during the summer of 1980 after 10 year old Danny nagged him to be taken there. I think the spillway exposes Waynesville and/or Liberty Formations, Richmondian, Ordovician.

These days Pops is an Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist, and he often guides nature walks at Caesar Creek and various Warren County, Ohio parks. He doesn't specialize in fossils, but he helped coordinate a TV segment on Warren County fossils on a local cable access channel a few months ago, interviewing Bill Heimbrock of the Dry Dredgers.

I just thought it might be cool to send Pops some pics of his crown, properly identified. All opinions welcome.

Nice of you to do something for your dad all these years later. A true testament to how good of a father he was.
