Abstract

A microcrinoid (Passalocrinus), camerate crinoid (Dichocrinus) and small blastoid (Diploblastus) are examined at high magnification and reveal latticework endoskeletal plates with slightly varied patterns of voids and interlocking rods. Cirrals from the base of a modern comatulid are illustrated for comparison.
