Continuing with the theme of late Carboniferous/Permian Brachiopods here is Juresania. A member of the Productida order, Juresania has the typical domed Pedicle valve and flattened Brachial valve. One of the key features are the regular short spines that line the shell (another hallmark of the Productida order).
Both the above specimen and the next specimen come from the Carboniferous (Pennsylvanian) aged Finis Shale near Jacksboro, TX.
I have been enjoying your entries about lower Permian fossils. I have quite a bit of material from Kansas (Wolfcamp series). That matches the specimens you have been showing. Would you like some pictures of trilobites, cephalopods, crinoids, and bryzoans from this area?ReplyDelete
Hi Rich, Most of what I have is from estate sales so it's just bits and pieces. If you have specific knowledge of the fossils and formation I'd like to learn about it. Would you like to do a guest blog?ReplyDelete
