Kope Formation Graptolites

All the pictures in this post are from the same plate.  The first two are of the top and bottom of that plate.  Fossils shown on the plate appear to be graptolites (colonial Paleozoic plankton).  These were found in the Kope Formation of Carroll County, Kentucky dated to the Ordovician Period.
