Modern Day Brachiopod

On my tour of the Indiana University Southeast (IUS) Geosciences department, they had a modern day brachiopod sitting in a jar of preservative. That explains why the image has optical distortions since it taken through a curved surface of a jar with the specimen in a liquid.

No name was on the jar so I am not sure what the name of the brachiopod is.

Here is a reference Platystrophia Ordovician Period brachiopod found in Louisville, Kentucky.
