These fossils were collected few months ago at the Pentland hils     .....


trilobites.. species are acernaspis and encrinurus, managed to find 12 broken up trilobites,but these ones were the most photogenicWink

What's the scale of the last one, Gary? - looks like a favositid coral at first glance.

Thanks, Gary - so what sort of width are the cells? - if they're not much less than 1mm it's probably a coral, if they're a fraction of a mm then probably bryozoan.

There are also apparently pores in the walls - I can see some clear ones joining the tubes (i.e. gaps in the walls) which suggests tabulate coral.

On the other hand, there are some dark spots in the walls that are possibly pores parallel to the main tubes - they could be acanthopores of trepostome bryozoans but might just be bits of matrix, need clearer pics really.

I'm pretty sure that's a favositid then - by the way, did you mean 10mm or cm for the colony diameter?

That's still within the range for a tabulate coral (the Treatise says down to 0.2mm) but it's clipping the top end of bryozoan, also matches Chaetetes-type calcisponge.
The colony looks like coral though, as do the mural pores.
