An unusual specimen in the collections of the Hunterian Museum, labelled as a ‘ten point star crinoid ossicle’, is re-identified as the distal spiniferous canopy of the anal tube of a camerate crinoid. It is referred to the monobathrid Eucalyptocrinites sp. and is close to the type species, Eucalyptocrinites rosaceous Goldfuss (Middle Devonian, Germany). The new specimen is probably Silurian; there are three other British Silurian Eucalyptocrinites. If the locality is correct, it is the first member of this genus from Scotland.
