Sandblasted Devonian Brachiopod

On June 17, 2009 I highlighted a Devonian Mediospirifer brachiopod. Today, I revisit this brachiopod after sandblasting the matrix off of it revealing more details of the encrusting Aulocystis corals and bryozoan. You can now see the full shape of the interlinking Aulocystis.
