    These coral are Favosites, Heliolites and Halysites, see my post in the Wren's nest hunt page for an ID chart that I got in a sedimentology practical Smile
    How are you prepping these by the way? I'm trying to work on some of mine from Dudley, acetic acid doesn't really do much, so I'm just using a toothbrush and water atm on my block, but it's a little slow..
    (1st is Favosites, 2nd is Halysites, 3rd and 5th are possibly some form of rugose coral, 4th is Heliolites)
