Lirio de mar fósil grande - en la matriz original - Scyphocrinites elegans
Silurian - Marruecos

A large specimen of the sea lilly, Scyphocrinus elegans, from the Silurian Period, 400 million years old.

These creatures were found in the Moroccan Crinoid beds of North Africa.

Crinoids have graced the oceans for more than 500 million years, and are part of a large group of marine invertebrates known as Echinoderms.
They are commonly called Sea Lillies because they resemble plants more than animals.
They survived by filtering plankton from the sea water.

The detail on this plate is outstanding (see photos)
The matrix has been repaired

Size: 37 cm x 22 cm
