"Microporella, nov. gen.

(Lepralia, part, Johnston &c.

Porellina, Smitt.

Reptoporina, part, D'Orbigny.)

Zoarium incrusting; zoooecia with a semicircular aperture the lower margin straight and entire; a semilunate or circular pore below it.

Type Lepralia ciliata, Pallas.

The Reptoporina of D'Orbigny includes this group; but as it also embraces a miscellaneous assemblage of forms, it seems better to employ a new name." (Hinks, 1877: 526-7)
