German Pleurodictyum problematicum Coral Fossil

Here is a picture of a Pleurodictyum problematicum coral fossil at the Museo di Paleontologia at Sapienza University of Rome Italy. It existed in the Devonian Period. The fossil was found in Eifel, Germany.

My pal Dave in Pennsylvania finds this coral genus in the Mahantango Formation. See his blog post about here: http://viewsofthemahantango.blogspot.com/2010/05/i-thought-id-start-my-blog-with-post-on.html

Ooo! Ooo! I've seen that specimen before in old illustration plates from the 1800's. I have one hanging on the wall even. I'll have to get a pic and send it to you for comparison. Very cool specimen. :)
