Hello,
 

I wonder if I may pick your brains? My girlfriend's looking for the names of any Carboniferous period crinoids for a project she's undertaking. I've only managed to think of the species name "Woodocrinus," but wonder if you guys could provide me with any others from this specific period? I'd be very grateful for any help.

 

Best wishes,

 

Oolite Jones.

There are actually loads and loads of them, Oolite... A recent one was Hylodecrinus cyrmrus, and Barycrinus and Platycrinites seem to be pretty widespread. More localised genera include Symbathocrinus, DichocrinusMespilocrinus, Hydreionocrinus and Eupachycrinus. Have a look with Google Scholar, and you'll find at least abstracts that should give you names to start from. Here's one paper that's available free (although it's mostly about Devonian ones):

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/1475-4983.00215/pdf

It gives you a start, anyway...

I should probably add that Clitheroe is one of the classic localities, with numerous species preserved as complete (normally isolated) calyces.

Wrights monograph on  carboniferous crinoidea  has 100s of them in it
