This Brachiopod Bites

Recommended Posts

My only complete speciman of Camarotoechia dryope, a Lower Devonian brachiopod from the Glenerie Limestone exposed along Route 9W between Kingston and Saugerties, NY. Both valves are attached and still open and close. DO NOT FEED!!!

That certainly is a unique preservation. I've collected a lot of brachs but rare to see one with the valves in that position.

I like your 'do not feed'...perhaps we need a Hallowe'en thread of spooky fossils.

Not just 'articulated', but 'articulating'; very interesting!
