Caption: A fossil specimen of Rhynchonella rosenbuschi. A fossil brachiopod. (Brachiopoda.) Shore east of Beinn Na Leac, Raasay, Invernessshire, Scotland.
Description: Rhynchonellid brachiopods flourished in the clear water where stable and firm substrates had developed forming 'nests' comprising hundreds of individuals. British Geological Survey Biostratigraphy Collection number GSE 2570. There was a great decline in the number of brachiopods at the end of the Palaeozoic era. In the warm shallow Jurassic seas two main types of brachiopods were left, the ribbed rhynchonellids and the smooth-shelled terabratulids. This specimen of Rhynchonella rosenbuschi is from the Jurassic Middle Lias from the shore east of Beinn Na Leac, Raasay.
