Hi all,
Some will guess this is another from me !
This sea floor dwelling fossil is also nick-named a 'lamp shell'.
They still have a few rare living relatives, eg. the 'Lingula'.
Brachiopods cover a vast time span of over 500 million years.
Perhaps one more to show tomorrow.
Thanks everyone,
Barbara Smile

You certainly have a fine collection of geological and fossil specimens, Barbara, and always so interesting to see, esp. when accompanied by your informative narrative.
Very nicely illuminated and captured with fine detail.
Ronnie.

I agree with the above. Only thing is I'll never be able to remember all you have said! but perhaps a little will sink in.

Very nicely presented. This one is quite different from the brachiopods that we would find along the shores of Lake Erie. Those were from the Devonian age and were typically dolomite grey.

This has been a thoroughly enjoyable series to view and different from the usual subject matter uploaded on here, which makes a refreshing change
