Crinoid

Abstract

A deep-water stalked crinoid. It is likely to be Bathycrinus carpenterii, which is the larger of the two stalked crinoids known to occur in the cold waters of FSC and Norway. The idenification is not certain as no specimen was collected but the 10 visible arms (because of a split in the basal part of the 5 arms) suggests B. carpenteri rather than the other known species from the area, Rhizocrinus lofotensis, which has no basal split and therefore 5 visible arms
