A species-rich hermatypic coral fauna from the late Early Albian (Mammillatum Zone) from Padern (Les Corbières, Aude, France) is taxonomically revised. The fauna encompasses 45 species in 24 genera. Genera of the suborders Faviina and Microsolenina dominate, followed by genera of the suborders Stylinina and Fungiina. The suborders Caryophylliina, Fungiina, Heterocoeniina, Meandrinina and Rhipidogyrina are represented by only a few genera. One species of the genus Parnassomeandra is described as…

An Early Aptian coral fauna from the Prebetic (southern Spain)
From the Lower Aptian of the Betic Cordillera a small hermatypic coral fauna is reported. The sampled outcrop is located in the Sierra de la Muela (Prebetic, South Spain). The studied corals come
The Cretaceous corals from the Bisbee Group (Sonora; Late Barremian - Early Albian): Solenocoeniidae
From the Bisbee Group, two Confusaforma, six Cryptocoenia, and one Cyathophoropsis species are here described and illustrated and most are common Early Cretaceous species with a wide geographic and stratigraphic distribution.
The current work constitutes the second part of the systematic revision of the corals from the Bisbee Group and deals with the genus Stelidioseris, a common Early Cretaceous species with a widegeographic and stratigraphic distribution.
The Cretaceous corals from the Bisbee Group (Sonora, Mexico; Late Barremian - Early Albian): suborder Heterocoeniina
The current work constitutes the fourth part of the systematic revision of the corals from the Bisbee Group in Sonora, northwest Mexico and deals with the suborder Heterocoeniina, a group of corals that are rare in the Cretaceous and do not show distinct palaeobiogeographic relationships.
