Juvenile (ad) and adult cups (e–g) of Eugeniacrinites cariophilites. a Lateral view of cup with wide articular facets, bulging radial areas separated by interradial notches, interradial processes high; M11428. b Lateral-distal view of cup with narrow articular facets, strongly bulging radial areas separated by interradial notches, interradial processes broad and high; M11429. c Cup with wide articular facets, strongly bulging radial areas separated by interradial notches; M11430; c1 aboral with symplectial facet to column; c2 lateral, note sculptured interradial processes along sutures in radial cavity. d Adoral view of cup, note interradial buttresses along sutures; M11431. e Cup with attached first columnal, such morphology with wide articular facets and flat column-like lower part corresponds to most of the finds; M11432. f Thickset cup, M11433. g Lateral view of low cup with damaged passage to column, presumably caused by predator, M11434.
