While working on a specimen, this little gastropod fell out. Its measures about 7mm wide. Is it a Worthenia or something else? Being so small, I'm not sure it looks like the classic examples I find on fossil plates. Ruler is in mm.

 

Found in the Glenshaw Formation. Pennsylvanian in age.

I certainly see Glabrocingulum there. Too bad I don't have the Aperture. Ananias gets taller, but this one is really small and probably different than a larger specimen. Thank you!

I believe I got a solid ID of Glabrocingulum. I got to take a trip to the museum today and asked the pros.

This is a Worthenia sp. I found at Mundy's Corner, PA three years ago. Note the differences with your specimen.
