Punctospirifer kentuckeyensis from Texas

A common brachiopod fossil of the Pennsylvanian is Punctospifier kentuckyensis. It's easy to ID based on the coarse ribbing, broad hinge line and small size. This particular specimen comes from the Harpersville formation which is part of the Canyon series near Breckinridge, Texas.
