Type Specimen: Lectotype; BSPG As III 76; Verified; Dry Preserved
Type Locality: Tithonian (Upper Jurassic)-Berriasian (Lower Cretaceous) from Štramberk (Czech Republic) (a part of the initial syntype came from Kotzebenz)
abusive designation of a holotype by Geyer 1955, the lectotype includes one partly polished dry specimen and one thin section.
Massive cerio-meandroid corallum with "epitheca" s.l. Subpolygonal corallites more or less elongated, occasionally grouped in short series by intracalicular increase. One or two opposed septa grow in any direction and separate the parent corallite in two daughter corallites. Often, the separation is incomplete and produces series. Radial elements are compact free septa. Radial and bilateral symmetry. S1 very thick with T shaped inner edges. S2 thinner with claviform inner edge. S3 and S4 very short and occasionally lonsdaleioid. Rhipidogyrid septa . Wall having the same structure as major septa. Endotheca made of thin dissepiments in the peripheral region and scarcer tabuloid dissepiments in the central part. Small thin and wavy lamellar columella.
