Dear listers

I want to thank all of you who responded to my call for help. The photos were identified by Dr Charles Messing as Tropiomentra carinata (Lamarck), family Tropiometridae.

Subject: Identification of crinoids


I am working on identifying specimens from a small reef on Trinidad's north coast. Among these are two species of crinoids, for which I have photographs, but have not been able to find similar species in any keys or on the Internet.

If anyone can help, please email me and I will send the photos.
