Crinoid, maybe

14.09.2008

I'm not quite sure what this is called. If I'm right, it's a Crinoid, but I could very likely be wrong. But it looks nice, all the same.

Update: after some futher investigations, I have found the correct name to be Barnacle or more specifically Balanidae.

  • Cool. Under the waterline on a boat?

  • Yes, correctamundo, that's where they live, but these specimens where found on a rock that's usually under water but low water levels exposed it's bottom part.
