Of the fourteen species (six new) assigned to eight rugosan and five tabulatan genera, identified in the coral fauna of the Point Hibbs Limestone of the west coast of Tasmania, eleven are systematically examined and illustrated. The genus Endophyllum is discussed in relation to Sinospongophyuum and Tabulophyllum. The microstructure of Silurian and Devonian cystimorphs is considered. The age indicated by the coral fauna is within the range Siegenian to Lower Couvinian and is possibly Emsian.
