      Fossils Pennsylvania is a great state for fossil hunting. There are a wide variety of prehistoric corals, mussels, clams, and occasionally even trilobites are found. There are also vertebrate marine fossils that are found throughout Pennsylvania from a time when sea water covered much of the state. Articulata crinoidea is recognised by it's unique large Calyx. Unlike most Crinoids, it doesn't have a stem; so it would have been washed away with the currents. 35 cm is a decent size for an Articulata crinoidea.
