Multivaltia multiformis coral from Spain

Solitary Scleractinian corals don't seem to be as abundant as colonial species in the fossil record. Perhaps that is the reason that I like them so much or maybe it is a similarity to the look of the Rugose (Horn) corals of the Paleozoic. In either case I was please to receive the specimens below of Multivaltia multiformis from my friend Jenaro in Spain.

Specimen #1

Specimen #2

Specimen #3

The above specimens come from the Aptian stage of the Cretaceous near the town of Jumilla, in the region of Murcia, Spain.
