Submitter notes: Pictured are five individual brachiopods. The top and the two left specimens show the brachial valve. The two brachiopods on the right show the pedicle valve view. They are a very common index fossil of the Arkona Formation. They were capable of living in the soft, muddy substrate. Most are flattened. These 3D specimens are uncommon in the formation. The five brachiopods range in size from 65 to 75 millimeters long.
