Abstract

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.
