I like the brachiopods. I collected belemnites somewhere near Mons when I was a child in the mid 1970s. I used to live nearby in a town called Casteau. I still have the belemnites.

Indeed, they are very lovely.:)

Isocrania, for the top one?

Thecidia next one down? 

Then Magas and Cretirhynchia? 

Not sure about the others. (or any of them!)

Indeed Isocrania praecostata, the 2nd ones are Trigonosemus pectiniformis.

I'll have to look up the other ones

Nice.  The shiny brachiopod in the center of your palm.  I am curious to see the other side.
