Temporal range: late Early Cambrian–Middle Cambrian

Gogia is distinguished from sea lilies, and most other blastoids, in that the plate-covered body was shaped like a vase, or a bowling pin (with the pin part stuck into the substrate), and that the five ambulacra were split into pairs of coiled or straight, ribbon-like strands. Six specimens of Gogia are known from the Greater Phyllopod bed, where they comprise < 0.1% of the community.
As a whole, the Eocrinoids are regarded as basal blastozoans very close to the ancestry of the entire subphylum.
