Syringothyrus Brachiopod Lophophore Fossil

Here is a fossil I do not think I have seen before. The Mississippian Period brachiopod Syringothyrus texta found in the Knobstone Formation of Clark County, Indiana, USA. What is special about this is the feeding tube (lophophore) is shown.

Nice find Kenny!
