Page 2: Crinoids Found

The two guys on the previous page were ginning because they had just found a beautiful calyx of the crinoid Ectenocrinus simplex.

Here's another specimen of Ectenocrinus simplex found that day.

But perhaps the best find of the day, was this fantastic Cincinnaticrinus varibrachialus with a really long stem and arms that are almost never found with the calyx (cup)! Nice going! (shown below with an enlargement in the red box.

Several other crinoid heads were found on rock surfaces. Both of the crinoids pictured below are interesting because they look like some of the less common crinoid genera. The second specimen pictures below is missing the cup entirely and you can only see the arms.
