Phytogyra magnifica d'Orbigny 1849, p. 6; Monotypy
Type Specimen: Lectotype; MNHN B11778; Verified; Dry Preserved
Type Locality: Oyonnax (Ain, France) "Corallien"
Non massive meandroid corallum, reptoid or at least growing laterally by terminal increase in free dichotomous series with a thin lamellar linkage. Strong inclined costae grew up toward the distal tip of series. The location of mouths within a serie is impossible. "Radial" elements are compact costosepta of Rhipidogyrid type arranged in two parallel rows within a serie. Thick septa regularly alternate with less thick septa. Lateral faces with strong granules uniformly distributed. Inner edges of septa often strongly thickened. Distal edges rather smooth. Microstructure not observed. Endotheca not observed. Synapticules absent. The nature of the wall is probably parathecal.
