Scyphocrinites was a non-sessile, free-swimming crinoid. It presented a lobolito or float, divided into chambers, this structure facilitated the movement of the animal, thus contributing to its great geographical extension. From the lobolito a long cylindrical stem begins, crossed by a canaliculus with a pentagonal section, and at its end a piriform calyx develops, formed by a large number of plates, the surface of which has a radial ornamentation. In each radius, two arms of the same size grow, branching dichotomously several times.
