Dagnachonetes supragibbosus brachiopod from Poland

This next fossil is also from the Skaly beds near Kielce, Poland and I think it's Dagnachonetes supragibbosus. I base this from pictures that I've found on Polish language web sites like and and from the publication "Middle Devonian Brachiopods of the Bodzentyn Syncline", Palaeontologia Polonica-No. 17, 1966, plate XIV.

This picture shows a slight sulcus like depression that is present on this specimen.

The Skaly beds are middle Devonian,  Eifelian to Givetian stages.
