      the Lower to Middle Ordovician is relatively incomplete in the Trail Creek Summit section. A more complete grap-tolitic succession (Fig. 3) can be pieced together from the faunal record of the region as documented by Carter and Churkin (), Dover et al. (), Ross and Berry () and supplemented by our new data. Description: This plate displays an example of the rhombiferan cystoid known as Pleurocystites. Cystoids are relatives of the crinoids that have oval rather than rounded calyces. They were either stalkless or attached to a stalk much like crinoids. Ordovician.

The Ordovician (/ ɔːr. d ə ˈ v ɪ ʃ. ə n,-d oʊ-,-ˈ v ɪ ʃ. ə n / or-də-VISH-ee-ən, -⁠doh- -⁠ VISH-ən) is a geologic period and system, the second of six periods of the Paleozoic Ordovician spans million years from the end of the Cambrian Period million years ago (Mya) to the start of the Silurian Period Mya.

The Ordovician, named after the Welsh. Crinoids are marine animals that make up the class Crinoidea, one of the classes of the phylum Echinodermata, which also includes the starfish, brittle stars, sea urchins and sea cucumbers. Those crinoids which, in their adult form, are attached to the sea bottom by a stalk are commonly called sea lilies, while the unstalked forms are called feather stars or comatulids, being members of the Class: Crinoidea, Miller, Ausich, Wright, Cole & Koniecki (): Disparid and hybocrinid crinoids from the Upper Ordovician Middle Ordovician crinoids from the Twin Cities area of Minnesota book Lagerstätte of Ontario.

This is due to a period of colonization by crinoids when the deposition of sediment was low. An event such as Middle Ordovician crinoids from the Twin Cities area of Minnesota book storm created a massive deposit of fine-grained mud which eventually slid and rapidly buried the colonies, preserving structures in place.

The target was composed of the stratified sedimentary cover comprising (from the top) bedded Upper and Middle Ordovician limestone (up to 20 m thick), Lower Ordovician Dictyonema shale (argillite with an admixture of organic matter, about 2 m thick), and an up to m thick layer of Lower Ordovician to uppermost Vendian sand, silt, and Middle Ordovician crinoids from the Twin Cities area of Minnesota book clay, which covered the Precambrian basement.

My hometown is as far up north as you can get in Minnesota, so I have grown up with the whole load of biases against City people: * They're stupid.

Bryozoans, sponges, crinoids, nautiloid cephalopods, conodontophoras, jawless fish, and planktonic graptolites become much more common. Graptolites are thought to be colonial hemichordates and are so widespread and varied during the Ordovician that they can be used as index fossils to. Crinoid fossils can be found in rocks around the world aged from Ordovician to present though they are most prevalent in Mississippian aged rocks.

Some of the best crinoid fossils in the world come from the Midwestern United States. The most famous crinoid fossil localities due to both abundance and incredible preservation is Crawfordsville. tral Twin Cities metropolitan area, as part of the eastern margin of a shallow structural depres-sion known as the Twin Cities basin.

• This general trend is interrupted by faults and folds in the northeastern and southeastern part of the county.

Displacement along faults is on the order of 25 to feet (8 to 91 meters). FIGURE 2. Complete, articulated crinoids from the Ordovician peri-Gondwanan margin are rare. Here, we describe a new species, Iocrinus africanus sp.
