Hexagonaria percarinata, Coral head

Submitted by: David Thompson
Taxon: Hexagonaria percarinata
Submit date: 2008-02-24
Location (approximate): Petoskey, Emmet, MI
Stratigraphy: Traverse Formation
Age: Erian (Middle Devonian)
Submitter notes: This is one of three views of this coral from the West side of Michigan near Petoskey in Emmet County, MI. The correlation of Northwestern and Northeastern goes by different names from one side of the state to the other. This was collected in the 'Kegomic Quarry' just to the East of the city of Petoskey. This is now a series of expensive condominiums and off limits to collecting. The 'Petoskey formation' here is comparable to the Potter Farm/Thunder Bay Fms. at Alpena according to the U. of M. Papers in Paleontology No. 7
