Strophodonta? from Iowa

Here are a couple of specimens from the Cedar Valley formation (Devonian, Givetian stage) of Iowa that I think are Strophodonta. I'm not entirely sure of the species or if I even have the genera correct.

Specimen #1

Specimen #2

There are a few different genera of Strophomenid type brachiopods that are found in the Devonian rocks of Iowa and some of them can be seen at my friend Nathan's Imgur page.
