Day #49 Deskcrop: Fossiliferous Packstone

For today’s deskcrop we’ll revisit the Mississippian Muleshoe Mound in the Sacramento Mountains, just southeast of Alamagordo, New Mexico. Like my previous deskcrop from this locality this sample is chock full of crinoid stems, but even more prominently featured is the large brachiopod located in the center of the sample.
