Aulacella prisca brachiopod from Poland

Aulacella prisca is unusual for me in that I can't seem to match it to any other genera that I've found in the Devonian here in the US. It comes from the Skaly Beds near Kielce, Poland which are dated to the middle Devonian (Eifelian to Givetian stages).

According to Aulacella are known from the upper Devonian of Iowa and Ohio.
