Coral on Brachiopod

Submitted by: David Thompson
Taxon: Aulopora microbuccinata
Submit date: 2014-10-03
Location (approximate): Sylvania, Lucas, OH
Stratigraphy: Silica Formation
Age: Erian (Middle Devonian)
Submitter notes: This large Brachiopod is encrusted with Aulopora microbuccinata which has grown over the lip of the Brachiopod meaning it was probably dead. The brachiopod is 6.1 cm wide by 4.1 cm long and 4.4 cm deep. This is heavily piritized as are many of the Sylvania fossils.
