This image is of an unidentified crinoid holdfast attached to larger crinoid stem fossil. It was found in the New Providence Formation (Keokuk) of Scott County Indiana USA. This creature existed in the Mississippian Period. Thanks to Kenny for this image.

Greetings! I am a geology student from Ball State university. I've been trying to get access to some new providence sites to look at the coral ridge fauna, but the quarries in clark county seem to be closed or not accepting of people coming in to look. Is there any chance I could know where this one might be?
