Camarotoechia sappho brachiopod from the Panther Mountain formation

I found this Camarotoechia sappho brachiopod at the Cole Hill Rd. locality in Madison County, NY. It comes from the Panther Mountain formation (Devonian, Givetian stage). I kept this specimen because it is a nice internal mold of the species whereas many of the other available specimens were just impressions in the rock and clustered tightly together. It's not perfect, however, there is a chip missing off the posterior that took the beak with it. Still it gives me a good representative specimen from the locality until I come across something better.
