Drymopora fascicularis Coral Fossil

Devonian Period fossil corals can be found in the Louisville, Kentucky, USA area. This area appears to have 100s of varieties of corals. Today, the one highlighted on the blog is called Drymopora fascicularis. It is found in the Jeffersonville Limestone of Clark County, Indiana and Jefferson County, Kentucky. Fossil was named by Davis in 1887.

Thanks to Kenny for letting me photograph it.
