Spirifer Brachiopod Fossil

Brachiopod fossil this might be a Spirifer sp. found in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, USA. This brachiopod looks a lot like those found in southern Indiana in the Jeffersonville Limestone called Orthospirifer sp. The Indiana fossil tends to be more gray though.
The Spirifer sp. exist in the Milwaukee Formation with is dated to the Middle Devonian Period.
Thanks to Nathan for the fossil.
