    Found one just like this in northern michigan.Treating it with hcl “20% 13baume via brush” reveled three horn coral, two types of hexagonaria, an array of crinoidials and 2 branch corals. I am wondering if the cephalopod is an odd ball in this timeline of a stone as its the only one i have ever found. Are cephalopods common this far up the traverse devonian line?
