    For such an unprepossessing little brachiopod (the largest shown here is about 23mm across, but Cincinnetina is also found in tiny juvenile forms in sediments from these exposures,) Cincinnetina has had many names over the last 140 years. Originally named Orthis meeki by Miller in 1875, Cincinnetina was recombined as Dalmanella meeki by Foerste (1909) and Walker (1982); then as Resserella meeki by Shrock and Twenhofel (1953); and then as Onniella meeki by Hall (1962). In 2012, it was rechristened Cincinnetina meeki by Jin.
