Brachiopods Found That Day

The most common brachiopod found was Lepidocyclus.

Occasionally, you find a Brachiopod with a hole in it. Some of these holes may actually be borings from Platycerid gastropods. In the case below, however, it is probably just a hole from weathering.

Here's a fine example of Vinlandostrophia acutilirata.

Another abundant Brachiopod found was Strophomena.

These Strophomena were found in large quantities in slabs. The one below appears to document a storm event.

A good number of the Brachiopod Hebertella were also found (next two photos).

It's easy to identify Hebertella by looking at their hinge. It has a distinct triangular pedicle opening.
