Permian Period Brachiopods

The following pictures are of brachiopods from the Permian Period. The specimens are on display at the natural history museum in Paris, France.

This first brachiopod is a Neospirifer ravana from Greenland.

This next set of brachiopod fossils are called "Terebratula" sufflata and I believe they were found in Germany.

This brachiopod is called Neospirifer alatus and I believe it was found in Germany.

These brachiopod fossils are called Neochonetes granulifer and were found in America.

These brachiopod fossils are called "Athyris" pectinifera and were found in Russia.
