Dimerocrinites elegans crinoidDescription: I have just recently been able to secure a selection of Early Silurian crinoids from Quebec Province, Canada. This is a specimen of Dimerocrinites elegans from the Sept Iles region of Quebec. Most are only known from fragmentary material, so an example such as this is most unusual. See my other listings for a fine 3-D Dimerocrinites specimen of an assemblage of this crinoid from the region.
