    Specimen from the upper member of the Verulam Fm. Measures 56 mm at widest extent of the colony. Stellate maculae clustered more closely together than C. florida and more akin in appearance to C. fischeri.

    .

    Specimen is currently not described in this formation, to the best of this collector's knowledge, although other specimens have been collected from this location in the past.

    Very nice! I had actually seen some other examples of C. florida online, with one helpful site distinguishing some species differences by the spacing of the monticules as well as whether they had brachiation or not.
