Along with this museum display reads: Crinoids: These flower-like animals are related to free-swimming star fish and sea urchins, but grow attached to the sea floor by a long stalk. Fossil remains of crimoids are found in the rocks from Ordovician to the present with many species still living in modern oceans. As crinoids die, their fragile skeletal parts tend to become scattered on the ocean floor making individual steam and calyx pieces the most common crinoid fossils
This unique slab of rock containing Pennsylvanian crinoid stems and calyxes was discovered in eastern Greenwood Co. Kansas and was collected by Joe Beeman and Rex Ashlock.
