Abstract [en]

In Sweden, Jurassic echinoderms are extremely rare. This present study documents an Early Jurassic echinoderm assemblage collected from a temporary exposure near Helsingborg in Skane, southern Sweden, which includes a previously undescribed species of isocrinid crinoid, Isocrinus ranae sp. nov., and an acrosaleniid echinoid. The Swedish specimens demonstrate that even limited echinoderm material from small exposures can be assigned to a high systematic level and provide data of considerable significance to the evolution of the group as a whole.
