Icthyocrinus (?) from Lockport, NY

This is a partial crinoid that I found eroded out of the Irondequoit limestone Rochester Shale (Silurian, Sheinwoodian stage) near Lockport, NY. It is only recognizable as a Crinoid on the one side (which was likely face down on the seafloor) as the other side is just a collection of dis-articulated bits.

Based on the picture that I found on the Primitive Worlds website of Icthyocrinus I think I have similar remains. Mine is somewhat less complete though. :)
