Two of the most significant findings from these detailed studies are as follows: (1) two fundamentally different types of malformations in crinoid fossils can be recognized, namely, those associated with a discrete embedment structure, pit, boring or attachment structure, and those characterized by amorphous swelling not associated with any recognizable structures; and (2) abundant occurrences of both types of malformations are documented from Silurian and younger strata (Brett 1978), but few occurrences in Ordovician deposits are known.
