When visiting a friend he showed me a fossil which he wanted identified. I took photos as best as I could under the circumstances. Location is on a beach somewhere on the west coast of Wales, sorry that's all he can remember, and he has had it for years. So here is hoping someone can do the impossible to say what type of fossil it is please.

I think therefore I am. I doubt so maybe not. I have split personality so one of us is right.

Hi

Looks like a partial very worn piece of coral. My guess maybe wrong, see what others think.

I agree - horn (rugose) coral probably Carboniferous.

Yes; definitely a Carboniferous coral - possibly Caninia sp. from the section visible in the second pic.
