The scientific latin name is Seirocrinus subangularis and it dates from the from the lower Jurassic period (approximately 200 million years ago.) It was discovered and carefully extracted from the Posidonienschiefer Formation at Holzmaden, Baden-Württemburg, Germany. The Sea Lily or Feather Star is a marine animal from the class Crinoidea of the echinoderms. It is one of the world's so-called "living fossils," with living species still found in today's oceans in a remarkable range of depths and locations from Indonesia to the Caribbean.
