Löser (2010) documented some specimens of Anisoria which also included one of the syntypes of this genus. In his description, however, he confounded calicinal series with exothecal developments. The corrected description of the diagnosis is as follows:


Meandroid colony. Corallites are arranged in sinuous series, separated by tholiform collines and ambulacrae. Corallite centers generally indistinct, but distinct corallites present occasionally. Costosepta compact, non-confluent to sub-confluent, finely granulated laterally. Their axial ends are generally cuneiform or claviform; rhopaloid axial ends are rarely observed. Developments of a lamellar columella present deeper in the corallum. Synapticulae absent. Endothecal dissepiments thin and vesicular. Exothecal dissepiments well developed, vesicular to subtabulate. Wall parathecal to septothecal. Microstructure consists of small trabecular developments, forming dark median lines.
