Resserella elegantula from Lockport, NY

The brachiopod below I believe is a Resserella elegantula from the Irondequoit limestone Rochester Shale near Lockport, NY. I base this upon pictures that are posted on the website "Primitive Worlds". It is a relatively flat brachiopod and reminds me a little of the Ordovician genera Dalmanella multisecta.

The Irondequoit limestone Rochester Shale is about 427 myo (Silurian, Sheinwoodian stage)
