Possible (almost intact) Brachiopod?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm curious if this is a Brachiopod fossil? One that is in relatively good shape? Found near Wyoming/North Branch, Minnesota to the best of my recollection.

I see a lot of brachiopods in my rocks but they've all been rather mashed up by the lively geological history. I've looked up some online photos and thought it resembled Strophomenida or Orthida but no reference to them on the Minnesota Fossils at a Glance from tht UOM. I don't know if region matters either since it sounds like they were quite prolific.  Thank you!!

I don't seem to see anything that would indicate there is a brachiopod there.

Below I added pictures I used for reference. 

(Info for the last 2 pics):

Here is another brachiopod from various sidea. This is from the Cretaceous Period, about 130 million years old. It is from the Isle of Wight, Lower Greensand. It is a Sellithyris. Size: 32mm
