DPS Ammonite posted a topic in Fossil IDI found these coral fossils in the Lower Cretaceous Weno Formation (or possible Paw Paw Fm), in northern Grayson County in northern Texas. The rock is a silty ironstone with lots of marine shells. The corals are about 5mm across and about 1-1.5mm thick. I think that they might be Microbacia sp. Has anyone found similar corals in the Weno Fm or other areas of similar age? Any idea of species? Does anyone know researchers that are working on Cretaceous corals and would be interested in this find?
