Horn corals belong to the phylum called cnidaria, and they are related to jellyfish, and modern day corals. Horn corals flourished during the Paleozoic Era. There were so many horn corals in the oceans of the Paleozoic world that they created large reefs, still found in many places. All of the order Rugosa went extinct during the Great Permian Extinction about 252 million years ago.
