Species Name: Cyathophora pratti
Age: Jurassic, Sharps Hill Beds
Location: Snowshill Hill Quarry, Gloucestershire
Cyathophora pratti coral which dates back to the Bathonian, approximately 166 to 168 Mya in the Jurassic. Cyathophora were photo-symbiotic suspension feeders which lived in shallow marine, shallow/restricted subtidal and lagoonal environments. These specimens were collected from Snowshill Hill Quarry, Gloucestershire which makes them particularly rare because the quarry was only in operation for a short period. These specimens are supplied in 2 x 2" card trays and naturally their size does vary. The larger specimens are approximately 3 cm in length and the smaller specimens are <3 cm.
