Foerstephyllum vacuum? Colonial Coral

Here is a colonial coral found in Jeffersontown, Kentucky. It is from the Ordovician but what exactly it is called is sort of a mystery. It is probably a Foerstephyllum vacuum (Foerste, 1909) because that area is known for that species. In order to know for sure it needs to be thin sectioned.
