Triathyris mucronata brachiopod from Spain

I've been fortunate to be able to trade with a friend in Spain for some interesting brachiopods from the Devonian. Below is Triathyris mucronata from the Coladilla formation of Spain.

 The Coladilla formation is lower Devonian in age (Emsian stage) and is part of the La Vid group from Colle which is near Leon in Spain.

Thanks to my friend Jenaro for these fossils.
