Pleurodictyum maximum Coral Fossil

Fossil appears to be a Pleurodictyum maximum coral. It is credited to Gerard Troost in the 1840 5th Annual Report on the Geology of Tennessee (pp.45-75). He named it Calamopora maxima and that specimen has been lost. This fossil was found in the Jeffersonville Limestone of Clark County, Indiana USA. The fossil dates to the Devonian Period.
