Devonian Pseudoatrypa Lophophore

Another Pseudoatrypa brachiopod with a silicified lophophore.  It is more vertical than the one found on the Orthospirifer brachiopod found in the Jeffersonville Limestone as well.  Animal existed in the Middle Devonian Period. Found in Jefferson County, Kentucky.

The fossil appears to have been sheared in half.
