Hustedia mormoni brachiopod from Kansas

Hustedia mormoni is a small rynchonellid type brachiopod that is common in Pennsylvanian aged rocks. This specimen came from Kansas, but that is all the label says. I found this specimen in the Yale Collection that has a provenance of: Late Pennsylvanian, Virgilian, Shawnee Grp, Oread Ls.
