Culmicrinus elegans Crinoid Calyx Fossil

From the Age of Crinoids or the Mississippian Period, this southern Indiana fossil is thought to be a Culmicrinus elegans. If the state of Indiana had an official state fossil it would probably be some sort of Mississippian Period crinoid.

The crinoids you've featured in the previous two posts were nice, but this one is spectacular! I'd love to learn more about it. Thanks for the post.
