Found on a print of a chalice with a piece of stem. On the plates of the chalice, you see small holes, there have spines on it. One you see in longitudinal section. It looks a lot like Acanthocrinus. I have put a question mark behind. A specialist will work it out come what species it is. A crinoid chalice in a gravel pit in the Netherlands is rare. Quarry Janssen, Arcen, North Limburg.
