Apiocrinites elegans Crinoid Calyx

Here are some pictures of crinoid calyx cups of the Apiocrinites elegans. They were found in Albarracin, Spain. The creatures date to the Jurassic Period.

The larger cup is about 3.8 cm wide at its largest point. Note the worm tube on the smaller calyx cup.

Thanks to Herb for letting me photograph them.
