Abstract

Exotic Štramberk-type limestones (Tithonian-Berriasian) from south-eastern Poland (Polish Carpathians) have furnished a number of cyrtocrinid taxa, including Phyllocrinus malbosianus, P. stellaris, Eugeniacrinites zitteli, Sclerocrinus polonicus, Strambergocrinus remesi, Apsidocrinus moeschi, and Hemicrinus sp.; a single brachial is indistinguishable from the Early Jurassic Cotylederma. A new form of Sclerocrinidae, Ascidicrinus armatus n. gen. n. sp., leads to a reappraisal of the genus Sclerocrinus ; Sclerocrinus pentagonus is assigned to this genus.
