Scyphocrinites elegans Zenker 1833.

This float bearing camerate crinoid has a wide geographical distribution during the Upper Silurian and Lower Devonian. Scyphocrinites was a cosmopolitan crinoid with examples found of similar ages in the United States, Africa, Europe, and Asia. It has an intricate calyx with many stellate plates. A bulbous structure called Camarocrinus has been associated with these crinoids, and is the reason for its widespread existence in the Upper Silurian Lower Devonian. This structure is believed to be a float, with the crinoid leading a pelagic existence, allowing it to cover much territory. They are sometimes found in mass associations. This is a fine example of this variety of Camerate crinoid to be found in the late Silurian deposits of Morocco, with much detail to the calyx, and many fine pinnules present
