1. Introduction. One of the most significant sites for fossil crinoids in the Palaeozoic of the British Isles is the Upper Ordovician Lady Burn starfish beds of south-west Scotland (Ramsbottom,Harper,Donovan, –, Donovan et al.,Donovan et al., ).Crinoids, and members of many other groups, are beautifully preserved, articulated and diverse, but occur as natural.

Special interest attaches to this Crinoid, since it may be regarded as representing the starting point of recent British deep-sea exploration, inasmuch as it was mainly due to the interest of Bars's discovery that the late Dr.

The Nunn Member (early Osagean) of the Lake Valley Formation of New Mexico is known for its abundance and diversity of crinoids. Although crinoids were first reported in the late s, no comprehensive study of the crinoids has been conducted and a complete list of the crinoid.

Most living crinoids lack stems, but those that still have them inhabit much deeper water(up to metres) than their fossil ancestors. Most fossil crinoid stems were probably less than a metre long, but some giants reached nearly 30 metres.

Here, we describe a new species, Iocrinus africanus sp. nov., from the Darriwilian-age Taddrist Formation of Morocco. The anatomy of this species was studied using a combination of traditional palaeontological methods and non-destructive X-ray micro-tomography (micro-CT).

Occurrences of Petalocrinus in China were first documented by Mu (), who recognized two new species on the basis of the specimens from the Shihniulan Limestone (Llandovery) at Wuchuan, GuizhouMu and Wu described the new genus Spirocrinus from the Leijiatum Formation (Llandovery) in the same () reported a new genus of this.

1. Introduction. A uniformitarian basis for the interpretation of the function of skeletons and skeletal elements of extinct taxa in all clades is a worthy methodology that has been widely practised in palaeontology since the pioneering approach of Cuvier (Rudwick, ).Even taxa that are extinct can be analysed if they have living relatives that can be used as analogues, such as the.

Donovan is a palaeontologist with research interests in the Echinodermata, Caribbean geology, ichnology (trace fossils) and history of geology. He has particular interests in the Palaeozoic Crinoidea (sea lilies) of northern Europe, particularly their systematics, biodiversity and preservation.
