Devonaria zeuschneri brachiopod from Poland

Based on 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 XVI, I'm calling this fossil Devonaria zeuschneri. It looks similar to Douvillina but the radial ribs are much coarser.

The specimen comes from the Skaly beds (Devonian, Eifelian to Givetian stages) near Kielce, Poland.
