Coral (6) from the Campanian St. Bartholomä formation, Styria, Austria (Gosau group, Eastern Alps)

Hello,

here is the next coral colony from the Campanian St. Bartholomä-formation in Styria, Austria (Gosau-group), collected 02/10/2019, west of Kalchberg, point 36.

This coral colony is intergrown with limestone. There is a naturally weathered cross section and naturally weathered vertical section (but not much to see there). 

I have cut and polished one end and preservation seems to be not too bad. However, as usual, am rather clueless. I think, it has external pali, so it could belong to Hydnophoropsis?

Many thanks for your help!
Franz Bernhard

For some reason I am not able to open your pictures!  I'll try again later, as I'd love to see them.  :)

@lissa318, thanks for the hint, I could also not open it.

Have uploaded the pics again, now it should work!

Rather Hydnophoraraea or Synhydnophora. But I guess the first.
