As promised, everyone had big grins on their faces from the
shear quantity of Horn Coral found. Here's a few of shots from member's
take-home to show just how abundant the Horn Coral was.
Yet more big smiles resulted from the exceptionally large size
of many of the Horn Coral named Grewingkia.
So abundant were the Horn Coral that it was common to find anomalous
associations between the Horn Coral and the common Brachiopods.
Another kind of Horn Coral found was the smaller solitary
coral that attached to other objects, Streptelasma. The specimens
shown in the next two pics are groups of Streptelasma that were
being encrusted by Bryozoans.
Among the colonial corals found were lots of the encrusting coral, Protaraea richmondensis, shown in the next two photos encrusting Brachiopods.
