Wright, A. J., Coen-Aubert, M., Bultynck, P. & van Viersen, A. P. (2010). New data on occurrences of the Devonian rugose coral Calceola in Belgium. Memoirs of the Association of Australasian Palaeontologists, 39 121-129.


Opercula and corallites of Calceola sandalina from the late Eifelian and early Givetian (Middle Devonian) Hanonet Formation of Belgium are illustrated. The few previous illustrations of calceoloid corals from the Devonian of Belgium did not include opercula showing the generically diagnostic morphological features, so for the first time the presence of the genus and species in Belgium is confirmed. One important corallite shows the alar septum and insertion of septa on the external surface of the counter face adjacent to the alar septum.
