The results of studies on the structure and palaeoecology of the brachiopod Horridonia horrida (Sowerby) from Lower Zechstein of the Holy Cross Mountains (Góry Świętokrzyskie) are discussed in the present paper. The life position preserved in some individuals, allowed the author to elucidate the adaptative character of several morphological elements of the shell and the range of their variability.
