Rugosa fossil coral represents an ancient group of solitary and colonial marine organisms that thrived from the Ordovician to the Permian periods, roughly 470 to 252 million years ago. These corals, characterized by their distinctive cylindrical or conical shape, built intricate skeletons composed of calcium carbonate. Rugosa corals played a significant role in ancient reef ecosystems, serving as vital habitat for various marine organisms. Fossilized rugosa corals are commonly found in sedimentary rocks worldwide, providing valuable insights into past marine environments, climate conditions, and evolutionary history. Despite their extinction millions of years ago, the legacy of rugosa fossil coral continues to enrich our understanding of Earth’s ancient seas.
