Athyris tumida brachiopod from Sötenich, Germany

Another new Athyris species that I received in my exchange with Nils is this Athyris tumida from the Rodert member of the Cürten Formation (Devonian, Givetian stage) near Sötenich, Germany. This is a more robust species that A. amanshauseri or A. spiriferoides with the shell being nearly as tall as it is wide.

Thank you Nils for this fossil.
