Eospirifer eudora from Lockport, NY

Below is a brachiopod that I think is an Eospirifer eudora. It was found in the Irondequoit limestone Rochester Shale near Lockport, NY.  Mike at Louisville Fossils helped confirm the ID for me as it's also found in the Waldron Shale near him.

The Irondequoit limestone Rochester Shale is a part of the Clinton group in New York. It's age is Silurian (Wenlockian epoch, Sheinwoodian stage).
