Penacrinites Crinoids

By Ernst Haeckel - Kunstformen der Natur (1904),



Pentacrinites
 is an extinct genus of Crinoid, also commonly known as Sea Lily which lived from the Middle Triassic to the Eocene Period of Asia, Europe, North America and New Zealand

Their stems are pentagonal to star-shaped in cross-section and are the most commonly preserved parts. Pentacrinites are commonly found in the Pentacrinites Bed of the Early Jurassic of Lyme Regis in Dorset, England.

Pentacrinites can be recognized by the extensions (or cirri) all around the stem, which are long, unbranching, and of increasing length further down, the very small cup and 5 long freely branching arms.

   



Pecten
 is a genus of large scallops or saltwater clams, marine bivalve mollusks in the family Pectinidae.

This genus is known in the fossil record from the Cretaceous period to the Quaternary period (age range: from 70.6 to 0.012 million years ago.). Fossil shells within this genus have been found all over the world.



Dapedium
 is an extinct genus of primitive neopterygian ray-finned fish

The first-described finding was an example of D. politum, found in the Lower Lias of Lyme Regis, on the Jurassic Coast of England by William Elford Leach, (2 February 1791 – 25 August 1836) an English zoologist and marine biologist) 

Dapedium lived in the late Triassic and Jurassic periods.
