Submitter notes: Views of the pedicle and brachial valves of three different specimens of the species: The top row is one specimen with the valves separate, each showing internal structure. The bottom row is two different brachiopods with exterior views of the pedicle valve (left) and the brachial valve (right). The pedicle valve of the internal view is also on the left side of the photo. They are much larger than P. vanuxemi and common in the formation. The two specimens on the bottom row are approximately 8mm thick and 35mm wide x 36mm high.
