Fossil Friday

This Fossil Friday specimen should be a little more challenging to identify than our previous trio of organisms. This creature was related to modern starfish, but it certainly doesn’t resemble them. The fossil dates from the Mississippian period, and was collected in Anna, Illinois. Identify it in the comments and win bragging rights for the week!
