A few corals from the Skaly beds of Poland

Also included with the lot of fossils from the Skaly beds were a few corals. I can't seem to locate much English language literature that would help to ID them unfortunately.

Specimen #1
This fossil reminds me of an Eridophyllum sp. type coral. The calice is crushed so I can't really see a cross section. 

The next two specimens are solitary rugose corals
Specimen #2

Specimen #3

And finally we have a couple of nicely detailed Calceola sandalina specimens.
Specimen #4

Specimen #5

All the above specimens come from the Skaly beds (Devonian, Eifelian to Givetian stages) near Kielce, Poland.
