Submitter notes: This Silica Crinoid, Gilbertsocrinus ohioensis, is beautifully displayed as a whole speciman elsewhere on this site. This example is a side view of the caylx with stem and showing the spine at the bottom in place while a small Platyceras is attached at the top right. Given the large spines on this crinoid, the Platyceras had to get on top some way other then crawling up the sides!
