Saccocoma pectinata

From - Solnhofen Limestone, Germany 

Age -150 Million Years Old


This is a lovely example of Saccocoma pectinata.  One well preserved specimen measuring 40mm and a possible second, although it is difficult to determine.  This is an very unusual fossil and we only have two in stock.  Don't miss out on the oppertunity to own such a rare and interesting fossil.

Saccocoma is an extinct genus of crinoid that lived from the Late Jurassic to the Early Cretaceous in Europe and North America.  It is a delicately constructed, stemless crinoid with a small, globular cup.  The arms branch once to give a total of ten.  Saccocoma is one of the most common fossils in the Solnhofen limestone, it was free floating and could probable tolerate variations in salinity. 


Crinoids, popularly known as Sea Lilies or Feather Stars were so abundant  in the seas of the Palaeozoic era that their remains formed vast thicknesses of limestone.  Most crinoids are attached to the sea floor by a flexible stem, although some species are only attached as juvenilles, becoming free swimming as adults.  At the top of the stem is a swollen cup or calyx to which the arms are attached.  These arms are used to filter food from the surrounding water.
