Abstract

The genus Angustiphyllum is recorded for the first time in the Armorican Massif (Rade de Brest) and two new species are erected: A. stylophorum and A. vidalae. The well preserved material shows the indisputable presence of costae on the exterior side of the corallum, which, besides the wedge-like morphology of the corallum, constitutes the main diagnostic feature of the genus. Angustiphyllum seems to be a good index for the Upper Eifelian of the Ibero-Armorican Domain.
