Wow! Are those parts of the lophophores preserved?

Pretty neat looking specimens.

Any chance of better pics?

Regards,

These photos were taken with a cellphone. A friend of mine has a Canon and she took photos of what turned out to be an infant Dipleura dekayi which I sent to Ed Landing for ID and some photos of fossil teeth from Monmouth CO. NJ which I sent to Jason Schein at the NJ State Museum. I do plan to upgrade the photos of my collection when she has time in the future. Then I'll probably start a gallery. In the meantime, I thought the members would appreciate seeing the very well preserved brachiopod and gastropod fauna from the Glenerie Limestone. I also have a number I haven't been able to identify as of yet. Always thanks for your input.
