Bobo the bear
Hi, found these at West quarry Wirksworth so Eyam Limestone Visean of Carboniferous I think.
Can't identify them from online texts though. 
I thought Rugose but then saw photo of Tabulate coral
Can anyone ID them and maybe narrow down to particular species please

They are rugose and seem to be Siphonodendron sp., presumably part of a colony.

Thanks again Tarquin. Trying to find the age of the Eyam/monsal dale limestone in years but all I can get is Visean, Brigantian but I know it is a quite narrow age(in comparison). Do you happen to know?
I collected some small samples of minerals from Butts Quarry - Galena, Calcite and Fluorite and guess these are from the Monsal formations. Only fossils I saw from there were gigantoproductids which I already have from few years ago at Hall farm quarry(now a housing estate)

Brigantian is currently given as about 331-334my, immediately below the Serpukhovian in international nomenclature. I never bother much about absolute ages as estimates are always changing. I guess they're gradually narrowing down though. [smile]

Hi you may want to print this off for future reference, but keep an eye on the website as it can change every year or so
