Devonian Period Brevispirifer gregarius

One of my favorite brachiopods to collect right now because of the wide number of swooping curves on its shell. The fossil is the Brevispirifer gregarius (Clapp, 1857) of the Devonian Period. It was found in Jefferson County, Kentucky in the Jeffersonville Limestone.


Thanks to Herb for letting me photograph these fossils.
