Help identifying fossil - possible petosky?

We found the following in Harbor Springs, MI in July. Initially thought it might be petosky, but it’s a lot lighter in color and smaller markings. Thanks in advance!

Could be a favositid coral. 

or not.

Can we see a photo of the side and back, please?

There are many mural pores, and tabulae showing in the longitudinal section, so I agree with @Tidgy's Dad that it's a favositid, with what looks like a lot of recrystallisation that obscures a lot of the detail.

Yes, the new piccies confirm my original id, I think.
