Devonian Coral Hexagonaria

Here is a Hexagonaria sp. coral found in the Jeffersonville Limestone in Louisville Kentucky. The end needs to be polished to reveal more detail about the septa. This coral existed in the Middle Devonian period. It measures about 4 cm in length and 1 cm wide.

For more information, see Erwin Stumm's Silurian and Devonian Corals of the Falls of the Ohio pages 43-44 and plates 38-39 (pages 128-131).
