Definetley not pseudodechenella, looks to me like greenops 

Not sure about species, boothi?

I concur with greenops, I'm not good with the species.

I'm not positive...but in looking at the rear I can see spikes.  As far as another that is similar...this one does seem narrow rather than round.

I got a positive Id on this today, a rare Greenops/Bellacartrightia.

If I'm not mistaken Bellacartwrightia is an entirely separate genus and is less common than greenops. Yours appears to be greenops sp as stated above

They are different genera but look very similar, I believe you can tell them apart by the pygidial spines but I would not be able to do so. I don't know what other morphological differences there are. Bellacartwrightia is much rarer as you said and these are definitely a safe bet for Greenops.

From what I can tell Bellacartwrightia appears to have longer and sharper spines.

Congratulations!  Isn't it great to find fossils that you were hoping to find? :)

Nice brachiopod and trilobites! :thumbsu:

In reference to the two pieces that fit on the top and sides...the fossilized exoskeleton is black on the side facing the fossil.  Will it also be black on the stone (opposite) side?

Thanks

I found another Trilobite in that rock that I've been working on.  From last Friday.
