Hi, this fossil is present in a slab from the Wenlock Limestone (near Dudley). Any help identifying it would be greatly appreciated. My thoughts are something along the line of a coral...perhaps Tryplasmia.

That looks like the brachiopod Leptaena depressa, the shell having been fractured and in the 1st pic the right side rotated over the top of the left side.
