Correct, your turn. Specifically what I was looking for with "relative to Asteroidea" was
about how the crinoids are upside down relative to the starfish, since their mouth and water vascular systems are on top (or any explanation that's correct; I would have just looked it up if I didn't know it)

Oh sorry. I was a little confused by what you meant by fossil record. If you mean when it existed its from Cretaceous-Present (what I have, Smithsonian, and Audubon say) although some sources say Eocene to Recent

Phylum
Class
Genus
Mode of Preservation
This mode of preservation is equivalent to what in Mineralogy?
With this type of mode of preservation can you see the fossils without something (nature, humans) altering it?
Why is this genus shaped the way it is
Time Range
Describe the hinge line
Where do/did these organisms live?

That's not going to work: google docs needs logging in and a lot of other stuff.
