Abstract: Reexamination of the holotype specimen of Delocrinus missouriensis showed that it is referable to the Erisocrinidae, rather than to the Catacrinidae, the family to which Delocrinus is presently assigned. A new genus, Eperisocrinus, with Delocrinus missouriensis the type species, is proposed, based on the following characters: Dorsal cup with radial plates having articular facets and obtuse proximal angles, essentially as in Erisocrinus but differing in having a considerably higher basal impression; infrabasal plates much more reduced and steeper walled adjacent to the stem; larger basal plates; interbasal and interradial sutures nearly equal in length; and anal X represented on outer wall of cup.
