Orthotetes keokuk Brachiopod

This brachiopod imprint is about the size of a child's hand. It appears to be an Orthotetes keokuk found in the Keokuk formation of Floyd County, Indiana.  The fossil is from the Mississippian Period. It measures about 10 cm wide and 7 cm tall.

Thanks to Kenny for letting me photograph it.
