Anastrophia Brachiopod

Waldron Shale brachiopod found in Clark County, Indiana.  The creature existed in the Middle Silurian Period.  My best guess as to its identification is the Anastrophia.  If one looks at the third picture, showing it from a hinge view it has been compacted.  Refer to the Indiana State Museum collection record for this genus.
