Hi
I've been trying to classify this coral for quite long. I need your help.
Location: Central Catalonia, North-east Spain.
Period: Tertiary-Eocen(Lutetian)
Any suggestions?
Best wishes
Pedra

Hello Pedra,

Very nice rugose coral!
I collected in the eocene in the Pyrenees myself, and also found corals. I will have a look for you in the Treatise to look for a coral like this.

In the Photopages you can view some of my coral finds from the Pyrenees (BoltaƱa).

if the age is correct, than it is not a rugose coral but a scleractinian coral,

but more specifically than this determination, i cannot go (don't have the specific knowledge)

cheers stijn

Ammun Rah is right. Rugose corals lived from the Ordovicium till Perm. Scleractinian coral lived from Trias till now.
It's a nice coral you are showing us.
Maybe you shout seek in the underorde from Faviina. I'm not sure, its a quess !!
Succes.

Hi
Sorry for the delay in thanking you all for your suggestions.

I tried Faviinia but with no satisfactory results. I'm still searching.
Regards
