Crinoid Holdfast on Dead Crinoid Stem

This pictures show a crinoid holdfast growing on the side of a fallen crinoid stem. The fossils were found in the New Providence Formation of Scott County, Indiana USA. The fossils date to the Mississippian Period. Thanks to Kenny for the images.

I am not sure it was dead, it looks like a different crinoid from the pattern in the crinoid section. The way it is healing over the column that broke off is kinda cool. kenny
