Antholites alpenensis Thunder Bay formation David Thompson

Submitted on 2009-06-03 by David Thompson

Location (approximate): Alpena, Alpena, MI

Strat unit: Thunder Bay formation

Submitter notes: This tabulate coral attaches around the stem of crinoids which is believed to keep them off the substrate. These are delicate corals and there are fronds of Bryozoan in the coralite cups but are NOT part of the Antholites. This is from the same Thunder Bay Limestone locality for the Dolatocrinus just shown and collected the same day. This does look a bit like a Mayan god of rain!

Antholites alpenensis Thunder Bay formation David Thompson

Submitted on 2009-06-03 by David Thompson

Location (approximate): Alpena, Alpena, MI

Strat unit: Thunder Bay formation

Submitter notes: This view shows the crinoid stem and the thickness of the corals which are comparatively thin. The coral is 3/4' or 20 mm by 3/4' or 20 mm by 1/4' or 7 mm thick. I am sure many of my friends in FUMMP have better examples of this unusual coral they could show.
