This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...much above the wall between the valleys. The septal dentations are subequal, except that the lowest is often much larger than the others. The columella is formed of septal trabecule and lobes; it is very often of a loose, spongy texture. This is notfilograna Esper, but is probably viridis Le Sueur (=etrigom Dana). 4. Specimen No. 671, bears "M. grandilolsita M. E." on the label below Ehrenberg's name. This is correct, only it must now be called clivosa of Ellis & Solander. I did not study M.

The name Meandrina can not be applied to any of these forms. The order of the publication of these genera, except Meandrina, is: Ehrenberg in his treatment of Platygyra labyrinthic a makes no mention of the West Indian forms, discussing only those from the Red Sea; therefore if we follow his published work, the former must be omitted. The name Platygyra must be used instead of one of the four genera above noted. Since Cseloria comes last among those proposed by Milne-Ed wards & Haime, I substitute Platygyra for Cseloria, following Dr. Bruggemann, who, in his "Corals of Rodriguez,"3 shows that Plalygyra more
