Unique among the Rugosa are specialized cyst-like structures in corals from an upper Carboniferous limestone within the Baird Formation in the Klamath Mountains, northern California. These structures, here referred to as septal cysts, occur mostly along the distal margins of the dark line extending along the axes of the major septa as seen in trans...

Rugose and tabulate corals are common in the Visean from the El Guadiato Area and several previous papers describe them (Rodríguez, 2004;Rodríguez & Falces, 1996;Rodríguez & Said, 2009;Rodríguez et al., 2001aRodríguez et al., , 2001bRodríguez et al., , 2002Rodríguez et al., , 2004Rodríguez et al., , 2006Rodríguez et al., , 2016. ...

Carboniferous rugose corals are useful for palaeoecological, palaeoenvironmental and palaeogeographic studies. However, most analyses are qualitative and/or comprise corals from long stratigraphical intervals, and detailed palaeogeographic studies in the Carboniferous from western Palaeotethys are scarce. This report presents a quantitative analysis of the late Visean coral assemblages from the El Guadiato Area (Southwestern Spain), which has been thoroughly studied during the last 30 years. This case study aims to check the utility of rugose corals in detailed palaeogeographic studies, reconstructing tectonic movements in the suture zone between the Ossa Morena and Centroiberian domains in the Iberian Massif. Sixty-one rugose coral species from the El Guadiato Area were included in the analyses. Moreover, two other late Visean rugose coral faunas have been added as an external reference: Los Santos de Maimona (Southwestern Spain) and Kingscourt (Ireland). The presence/ absence datasets have been treated with paired group (UPGMA) Hierarchical Clustering and a Detrended Correspondence Analysis. The results of this study support previous observations about the palaeogeography of the El Guadiato Area, backing the hypothesis that the strike slip faults of the area produced large lateral displacements. The results of analyses conducted at this level of detail appear to be conditioned by palaeoenvironmental differences, but the results of the comparison with Los Santos de Maimona and with Kingscourt's faunas look promising for future larger comparisons between different basins.

Moreover, some new species, based on the similarity of the mature growth stages, were introduced into that genus. ...

Seven genera (one new), belonging to four subfamilies, seven named species (six new), four species left in open nomenclature and two specimens included in this paper as unnamed Aulophyllidae are described from strata ranging from the lowermost Bashkirian Limestone D5¹⁰ to the lower Bashkirian Limestone F1. A new genus: Voragoaxum and six new species: Dibunophyllum medium, Dibunophylloides columnatus, D. paulus, D. similis, Voragoaxum cavum and Rozkowskia lenta are introduced. Comparison of the ontogeny of the earliest Bashkirian species of Nina Fedorowski, 2017a and Dibunophylloides Fomichev, 1953 suggest the derivation by descent of the Family Bothrophyllidae from the Subfamily Dibunophyllinae. This means that true bothrophylla are absent in the Mississippian strata of the Western European Province and, perhaps, in the contemporaneous strata of other areas as well.
... 1c): Sierra Boyera (SB) and Sierra del Castillo-Sierra de la Estrella (SCSE). Most studies carried out in the central band have been focused on paleontology (corals, algae, foraminifers, conodonts), biostratigraphy (mainly foraminifers and corals) and the stratigraphy of the calcareous deposits (Mamet and Martínez-Díaz 1981; Cózar and Rodríguez 1999 Cózar and Rodríguez , 2003 Cózar and Rodríguez , 2004 Cózar and Mamet 2001; Cózar 2003a, 2003b Vachard 2004a, 2004b; Bermúdez-Rochas et al. 2004; Rodríguez et al. 2004).

Currently, the different roles of peloidal micrites are not well understood in matrix-supported bioconstructions such as mud mounds. Upper Viséan outcrops from Guadiato Valley, Cordoba Province, SW Spain provide well-preserved peloidal-dominated mud mounds. Microstructual analysis of these mud mounds has allowed us to establish 13 microfabrics. Although peloids are conspicuous constituents in the microfabrics, they have been differentiated into seven peloidal-dominated types, grouped into three categories: (a) homogeneous fine peloidal types (3 subtypes); (b) homogeneous coarse peloidal types (2 subtypes); and (c) heterogeneous coarse peloidal types (two subtypes). Fast cm-scale microfabric changes were mapped directly onto thin sections. This methodology allows the researcher to recognize the micro-framework of these mud mounds as a complex, multiepisodic organization of microframes and intermicroframes that are formed by primary and secondary automicrites (non-reworked and reworked automicrites, respectively), autochthonous internal sediment, and allomicrite and marine fibrous cements. The thin-section mapping was also used to estimate the automicrite-allomicrite relationship, which is crucial in separating the microbial and biodetrital mud mounds.
... Area go back to the 19th century (Yegros & Sánchez 1850;Mallada 1880); most palaeontological and stratigraphical studies were focused on the Viséan units. This is especially marked for studies on rugose corals (Rodríguez 1985(Rodríguez , 2004Falces 1997Falces , 1998Hernando 2000;Rodríguez-Curt 2000;Rodríguez et al . 2001aRodríguez et al . , b, 2002Rodríguez et al . , 2004Rodríguez & Hernando 2005), but corals from the Serpukhovian San Antonio-La Juliana Unit have been only recently studied (Ramírez-Viu 1994; Falces & Rodríguez 2002;Gómez-Herguedas 2003, 2006Gómez-Herguedas & Rodríguez 2003, 2006. ...

Combined analysis of microfacies and rugose coral features provides a useful tool for palaeoenvironmental studies in areas where outcrops are not appropriate for field observations. A detailed study of Serpukhovian rugose corals from La Cornuda section (Guadiato Area, SW Spain) by means of thin sections allowed the identification of environments where they lived. All corals were collected in unit 1 of the section where three different but intimately connected environments have been identified. Corals developed mainly in small mounds built jointly by microbial communities, algae and corals. Some corals also lived in calcareous shoals mainly composed of echinoderm plates. Finally, some corals occur in Oncoidal limestone that represents a shallow ramp, but they were mainly transported from shoals and mounds.

The Anarak Group with Zaladu (Gzhelian-Asselian age) and Tigh-e-Madanu (Sakmarian age) formations in the Ozbak Kuh Mountains (Central Iran) is more than 180 m thick and includes thick units of conglomerate, shale, sandstone, calcareous sandstone, sandy limestone, fusulinid limistone, marl and dolomite layers. In the sequence of Zaladu formation, the accumulation of coral species of Pseudozaphrentoides winsnesi Flügel, 1995, was abundantly identified in two horizons in the upper part of the Ghezelin layers. Based on fuanal composition, diversity and abundance, spacing of corallits and microfacies, the mentioned accumulation is categorized as low-level (of Type A, ecological zone of A2). This zone represents a tough ecological condition where only a limited number of solitary corals could have survived the life-threatening factors. Based on microfacies studies, the coral community was identified to be restricted to the shoal and around it (lagoon toward shoal and open sea toward shoal) in a shallow platform.

In NW Turkey, the Viséan part of the Yılanlı Formation is dominated by shallow-water limestone containing rugose corals, tabulate corals and brachiopods. Six sections were sampled in the Zonguldak and Bartın areas. In these sections, two assemblages were recognized. The lower one includes numerous colonies of lithostrotionids (S. martini, S. irregulare, S. pauciradiale, S. asiaticum, S. scaleberense, S. kleffense, Lithostrotion araneum) associated with the solitary species Palaeosmilia murchisoni, Clisiophyllum keyserlingi, Aulophyllum fungites, Siphonophyllia sibly and Koninckophyllum interruptum. This first assemblage is typical of the lower Warnantian (Asbian) RC7β rugose coral zone of Western Europe and is dominated by taxa with a wide spatial distribution within this province. This assemblage is common both in the Bartın and Zonguldak areas. The second assemblage is known in Zonguldak but not in the Bartın area where the upper part of the Yılanlı Formation was eroded at the end of the Viséan. The corals forming this assemblage are S. martini, S. irregulare, S. pauciradiale, S. asiaticum, S. scaleberense, S. rallii, Lithostrotion decipiens, Palastrea konincki, Corwenia cf. vaga, Nemistium cf. affine and the solitary species Aulophyllum fungites, Palaeosmilia murchisoni, Axoclisia cf. cuspiforma and Pseudozaphrentoides cf. juddi. Palastrea, Corwenia and Nemistium are the guide taxa of the upper Warnantian (Brigantian) RC8 biozone. The palaeobiogeographic affinity of these two assemblages is clearly European and they are similar to the Late Viséan coral fauna of Belgium and England. Only S. asiaticum indicates a more Asian influence making it similar to the Donets Basin. The complete lack of Diphyphyllum, Dibunophyllum, Axophyllum, Gangamophyllum and Lonsdaleia is a singularity of the Zonguldak and Bartın area and is not explained by any facies issue so far.

The Viséan succession of the Jerada Massif contains a relatively diverse rugose coral fauna, which comprises 12 genera. Only two of these (Siphonodendron and Lithostrotion) are reported to include more than one species. Most taxa show distinctive facies dependencies. Small solitary corals are found in shaly environments of the Oued Es-Sassi Formation. On the northern flank a coral patch reef formed on an oolitic shoal in the Koudiat Es-Senn Formation. Its core mainly consists of Lithostrotion vorticale colonies, whereas in its surroundings literally hundreds of specimens of Siphonophyllia samsonensis occur. Associated with these dominant taxa occur colonial and further large solitary taxa (Palaeosmilia, Dibunophyllum). Tizraia and Pareynia are restricted to microbial-dominated buildup facies. Their presence might be strongly controlled by the development of this buildup type, because further occurrences in Algeria, Morocco, and Belgium are all in the same facies. The coral fauna at Jerada is a typical Late Viséan assemblage for the Western European Province. The Eastern Moroccan Meseta may be an important pathway within the province for the connection between the Central Saharan basins and NW Europe. The biostratigraphic ages of the coral fauna partly contradict ages based on carbonate microfossils; the coral ages are slightly older and typical Brigantian coral taxa are absent.
