Evidence of shallow-water cyrtocrinids (Crinoidea) from the Callovian of Poland

Salamon, Mariusz A.; Gorzelak, Przemysław


The paper describes the cyrtocrinid crinoid, Dolichocrinus cf. aberrans, from the early Callovian of the Zalas Quarry (southern, extra-Carpathian Poland). This crinoid occurs with other cyrtocrinid columnals referred to Cyrtocrinina fam. et sp. indet. These findings represent the first evidence of cyrtocrinid crinoids in shallow-water deposits.
