Glyptocystites multiporus

Various echinoderms from Ordovician New York...
Top right hand corner is the crinoid Cupulocrinus jewetti, which has its stem conveniently wrapped around a stem of the coral-like bryozoan, Batosoma.
Next to C. jewetti is Archaeocrinus pyriformis.
Directly below A. pyriformis is the rhombiferan cystoid Pleurocystites squamosus.
Directly in front is another rhombiferan cystoid, Glyptocystites multiporus

Certainly, the oceans are poorer for the loss of these enigmatic creatures.

Like I said before in other comments, I have nothing but the utmost respect to the people who draw crinoids on a regular basis.

Not that the ocean today isn't an amazing place, but man would I love to see what the ancient ocean looked like. How these guys lived...
