Paleogene Cnidaria


The Cnidaria include the Sea anemones, corals, jellyfish, sea pens, and hydra, but only the corals are represented in the fosil record of New Jersey. More precisely the fossil Coral of  New Jersey are all members of the Class Anthozoa; the  marine polypoids. More specifically they are all members of the Order Scleractina or the Stony Corals.
