    Found among imported fill from various locations, all Devonian (Dundee Fm, Amherstberg Fm, and Bois Blanc Fm). 

     

    Among Bois Blanc Fm rocks more dominated by plentiful examples of other dalmanatids such as Anchiopsis anchiops. This was an outlier and the only example I have been able thus far to find.

     

    My thanks to @piranha for his timely and expert identification of this interesting dalmanatid.
