"Gogia" was one of the first, if not the first known, genus of the early echinoderm class, Eocrinoidea, from the Cambrian.

The species of "Gogia", like other eocrinoids, were not closely related to the true crinoids, instead, being more closely related to the blastoids.

"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 arms were split into pairs of coiled, ribbon-like strands.

As a whole, the Eocrinoids were believed to be ancestral to Blastoidea.
