Abstract

A new species of Apiocrinites is described from the Middle Jurassic (Callovian) Matmor Formation of the Negev, Israel. Apiocrinites negevensis is from the tropical latitudes in the Tethys, in contrast to all other reported species of this genus. With a narrow radial facet and adjacent arms not in lateral contact and large aboral cup plates, A. negevensis is quite unusual for this genus.
