Fossils from Solnhofen - Echinoderms

 

Comaturella Sinosura

The fossil echinoderms from the solnhofen deposits include echinites (fossilized sea urchins), sea cucumbers, crinoids, starfishes and brittle stars. While starfishes are extremely rare also echinites are not very common. Crinoinds like the floating Saccocoma sp. are frequently found. Sometimes they are hundreds of specimens per square meter. This is called "Knopferte Lagen (knob-layers)". Other fossils are brittle starts from Hienheim and Zandt.
