    Dan,

     

    I can't see individual stem discs. That may be due to erosion, but overall, I think they are something other than crinoid; I can't say what.

      Hi Dan and Mike,

      Yes, I agree with Mike, it is difficult to see from the photograph. I see why you might think they look crinoid,  but they may be something else, I am not convinced - perhaps you could bring them in to the Angela Marmont Centre so that we can have a closer look?

       

      All the best,

      Fiona

            You'll have to give us a link (Googling 'Matthew Raven' didn't help).

            You can insert links just as plain text, or using the 'insert link' button (to the left of the smiley icon).

                Yes - they do look very similar.

                I'm fairly happy to go with crinoid, but no further (as well as Bougueticrinus, there are probably other genera with similar stems).
