Eucalyptocrinites Calyx with Bryozoan

Here is an Eucalyptocrinites calyx cup with some coverage of bryozoan.  Recently, I did some matrix removal on this fossil.  Some of the spikes became visible as well as some of the plate details.  See following images for closeups of some of the calyx plates.

I believe the fossil is from Shelby County, Indiana found in the Waldron Shale of the Silurian Period.

Fossil belongs to Dave at Views of the Mahantango blog.
