Eridophyllum Colonial Coral

Wow, this coral is about 30 cm wide. My cousin found this recently at a work site luckily before a piece of heavy machinery crushed it. It appears to be a Devonian Period Eridophyllum from the Jeffersonville Limestone. It appears to have some bryozoan colonies growing on top of it.

The coral fossil was found in Louisville, Kentucky.
