Ordovician Brachiopod Id?

Recommended Posts

Recker

I found these brachiopods on the Whitewater River, Southeast Indiana within the Cincinnati Arch.  Was trying to identify them with my book wondered if they are what I think they are.  

The one on the left, the shell with the groove in the middle, could it be Platystrophia?

The small shell bottom right, Hiscobeccus?

The cluster of shells on the top, I have no idea.

 

I appreciate how help you all are!

Here are my guesses

"Vinlandostrophia" = Platystrophia

 

Pardon typo in photo (Rhynchonellida)
