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.
