Heliophyllum infundibulum Horn Coral with Aulocystis

A fine Middle Devonian fossil specimen of a Heliophyllum infundibulum horn coral hosting another coral colony of Aulocystis transitorius. I found this coral in the Beechwood Limestone of Clark County, Indiana and my cousin Kenny cleaned it with air abrasion. It looks so much different when I spotted it. One could tell it was a horn coral and had another coral colony but WOW he really uncovered a nice size colony on this specimen.

Thanks to Kenny for the pictures.
