Sediments included terrigenous clays and silts, derived from the uplifted Taconic Orogen to the east-southeast, and autogenic skeletal carbonates, mostly bryozoan zoaria, brachiopod shells and crinoid
The molecules appear to be aromatic compounds called quinones, which are found in modern crinoids
and other animals.

Siderite within the Barnsdall Formation of northeastern Oklahoma occurs in four varieties: (1) large nodules lacking a distinct central nucleus, concentrated in horizons bearing articulated crinoids
; (2) small concretions with distinct skeletal nuclei consisting of infaunal bivalves and inarticulate brachiopods occurring in horizons relatively lacking in articulated crinoids
material; (3) large sideritized burrows occurring above crinoid
horizons; and (4) concretions nucleated around former sites of soft tissue in large crinoids
and productid brachiopods.
are flower-shaped animals that grow on stalks rooted to the ocean floor.
also feature on the knobbly bollards linked by a chain round the Steble Fountains, in front of the Walker Art Gallery.
Sea shells, St Cuthbert's Beads (fossilised crinoids
found on the island) and fishing twine can be seen amidst the vivid red, gold and green cloth in the rug.

The answer is crinoids
- living organisms that are found in great abundance and variety on the Great Barrier Reef and other ocean environments.
are frequently observed on the carbonate outcrops.
Fossil goniasterid marginals have been found in calcareous sediments ranging from fine to coarse and are typically accompanied by the stereomate remains of other echinoderms, namely echinoids and crinoids
Descriptions of two new species of Crustacea, fifty-one species of Mollusca, and three species of crinoids

Other megafaunal invertebrates, such as crinoids
, basket stars, and sponges also may enhance the structural components of fish habitat (Puniwai, 2002) and may be disturbed or destroyed by some fishing activities (Freese, 2001; Krieger, 2001).
The Ninase Member contains fragments of brachiopods and crinoids
, and also some tabulate corals (favositids) in the layers of marlstone intercalating with grainstone.
Also reported by ltalithos (2004), but more difficult to find in the Legislative Building, are corals, crinoids
, sponges, mollusks and forams.
