A walking crinoid and its trace

Time for discovers: a Jurassic crinoid at the end of its trail! This discover is not only important because trace fossils are very rarely associated with their producer but also because… it’s a new genus for science! In other words, this kind of trace fossil has never been described before. We choose the name Krinodromos bentou (it means “the course of the crinoids of S. Bento village”) to describe this new trace!
