Favosites clelandi Colonial Coral

This picture was taken of a fossil in the winning display case at the GeoFair 2009 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

It was labeled as a Favosites clelandi colonial coral from the Middle Devonian period. It was found in the Jeffersonville Limestone from Jefferson County, Kentucky. Also noted: "This large hemispherical colony served as a substrate for a smaller Thamnopora limitaris."
