Mucrospirifer
2014-01-12 00:00:00

Mucrospirifer is a genus of extinct brachiopod of the order Spiriferida. This genus is sometimes known as the “butterfly shells.” Fossils of this genus occur mostly in the Middle Devonian strata. When alive, this genus mainly lived in muddy marine sediments, and were attached to the sea floor via its pedicle (foot). The bi-convex shell was about an inch long, and sometimes grew to 1.6 inches. The shell has a fold, groove and rod-like structure. It is elongated along the hinge line,...
