FOSSIL CRINOID

  

190 million years old

  

Pentacrinites fossilis

  

Lower Lias. Black Ven Marls

Charmouth, Dorset

  

A section of the 'Pentacrinites Bed' from the Lower Lias of the Dorset coast. It is somewhat waterworn but still a very nice specimen.

  

Crinoids (also called sea lilies) look like plants but they are marine animals related to starfish and sea urchins. Most species were attached to the seafloor by a stalk but some were free-swimming. The mouth was surrounded by numerous feeding arms. They are still living today but were much more numerous in the prehistoric past.
