Crinoids from Michigan
Crinoids from Michigan should be considered rare and complete crowns extremely rare. This collection of crinoids came from the Alpena area and was collected back in the 1960's and '70's. Most of the collecting localities no longer exist. I was fortunate to be good friends with the collector of most of these crinoids. When the decision came to start disposing of the collection, I was a very fortunate recipient. I am very grateful to Patricia Rutkowski for passing her collection on to me. I have merged it with specimens in my collection and am displaying it here for all to see. Not all specimens are posted here. Just enough to make one drool. I tried not to repeat to many of the same species, but that didn't happen. The Alpena area is very diverse in formations and species. I tried to show as much of the diversity as possible and then some specimens just had to get on the page.
