Halysites catenulatus

Halysites catenulatus of the Silurian Period found in Kentucky.  Fossil displayed at Smithsonian Museum on Natural History (August 2010).  My guess is this fossil was found in the Louisville Limestone.  Every museum with a Paleozoic fossil exhibit should have a piece of chain coral on display to represent the Silurian Period (in my opinion).
