Brachiopod Atrypa reticularis

This brachiopod is from Benton County, Tennessee. It existed in the Lower Devonian Period and was found in the Birdsong Formation. The brachiopod was called Atrypa reticularis.

Thanks to Herb for providing the specimen.

As a comparison, here is an Atrypa reticularis from the Middle Devonian Period found in Saharan Africa. The specimen is from the natural history museum in Paris, France.
