CRINOID CALYX ON MATRIX - SILURIAN, SHROPSHIRE.


Eucalyptocrinites decorus (Phillips)

Piece of fossil rich limestone with Corals, Brachiopods and Bryozoans. Along one edge is the base of a Crinoid calyx lying upside down. Shows the attachment point for the stem and the ring of basal plates. Nearly all the crinoids found at Farley are found like this suggesting a catastrophic event of some kind which ripped into the crinoid forests. Nice preservation and detail.

Silurian, Wenlock Series, Sheinwoodian Stage.
Farley Quarry, Much Wenlock, Shropshire.

Crinoid calyx : 2.3 cm. diam.
