Cluster of Orthotetes Brachiopod Fossils

Fossil plate was found in the Edwardsville Formation of Floyd County, Indiana, USA. The fossils date to the lower Carboniferous (Mississippian) Period. The brachiopods on the plate appear to be Orthotetes keokuk. It is somewhat rare to find so many clustered together.

Thanks to Kenny for the image.
