Making room for Silurian corals

By March 12, 2017News

SDGS members find : The tabulate coral Thecia (Thecia) expatiata {Syn., Thecia swinderniana} from Much Wenlock, Shropshire, which occurs as thin sheets encrusting other corals or a stand-alone like the one I found below. It is also described in the very informative book “British Fossils Palaeozoic”

Also having a lot of fun with the book “A Monograph of the British Fossil Corals” by H. Milne Edwards and Jules Haime printed for the paleontographical society in 1850! The pages (figure 7 and 7a) below were used to describe this Silurian coral.

Be sure to book your space for Lea Quarry at the end of the year. 😉
