Im not a brach guy so this to me seems like a lot of work for a brach.  Is it a rare one?   I do like it on the matrix though.

If brachiopods are mostly all you got then you gotta love em. I do.

 

Nice work, @Peat Burns.

Yeah, I can appreciate that sentiment.  My collecting focuses on assemblages.  While I have my personal subjective biases in terms of "favorite" types of fossils, my collecting applies equal value to each taxon at each site.  I like to have at least a few of each taxon properly prepped to show features, etc.  The rest I leave "farm fresh" due to time constraints.  This specimen is my first S. titan, so it got some priority :).  The nice thing is that this method, when applicable, requires very little effort. You sprinkle on the KOH and "set it and forget it".  Then "rinse and repeat" as necessary :)

Thanks dou.  I usually use my phone and can't see my moniker.  One time i used my computer and i noticed it said "brachiopod aficianado".  Either I have Alzheimer's and forgot I did that (not likely) or one of the moderators kindly gave me too much credit and put that on there.  I'm definitely not an aficianado, just an active, enthusiastic learner, so I quickly made the appropriate adjustment!:)

Ok, I understand better now.  We all seem to have our 'thing' when it comes to fossils.

Great brachiopod fossil! 

I enjoy seeing different epibionts on invertebrate fossils.  :) 

Is that Aulopora sp on the pedicle valve? 

Great prep as well. 

Thanks for posting this.

Thank you. Yes, that is Aulopora!

 

There's also Hederella all over the opposite valve as well as Philhedra crenistriata. They are visible in the pic if you zoom in.

 

So few brachiopods get prepped.  They make fine looking specimens when all cleaned up:)
