    Here is some terminology for describing the Eublastoidea, most commonly known as blastoids! This is a long lived, globally distributed echinoderm group. They would have had a stem and arm like structures called brachioles but all of that falls apart very rapidly after death. Does anyone have a favorite blastoid? Mine is Cryptoschisma a Devonian Spanish beast, so cute. #fossil

    • My favorite is Pentremites convexus, mainly because it’s the only blastoid in my collection… I wish there were some good blastoid hunting areas in the Netherlands!
