Chonetes sp. brachiopod from Germany

These next specimens are a species of Chonetes  that come from the Kerpen mbr. of the Cürten Formation (Devonian, Givetian stage) near Sötenich, Germany. They resemble the Devonochonetes scitulis that I find in my local Devonian rocks such as the Mahantango Formation of Pennsylvania or the Arkona and Widder Formations in Ontario.
