—A new genus and species are described in the subfamily Para.smihinae. Balht/cyathus maculattis Pourtales, 1874 is transferred to the new genus. Both species arc characterized by having paliform lobes before tlie penultimate cycle of septa and an identical method of basal reinforcement. [Scleractinia; Rhizosmilia; Parasmiliinae.l Numerous species have been uncritically placed in the genera Bathycyathus and Coenocijulhus. One of these is Balhycyathus maculatus Pourtales, 1874 (= Caryophyllia…

New taxonomic, stratigraphic, and geographic information on the genus Faksephyllia Floris, 1972 (Scleractinia; Caryophylliidae); first records from the Oligocene of Austria, Germany, and Italy.

The scleractinian genus Faksephyllia Floris, 1972, is revised based on the study of original and topotypic material as well as original descriptions, finding that it represents the earliest colonial genus among the caryophylliids.
