Tabulata

Favositina Wedekind, 1937

Suborder FAVOSITINA

Taxon overview

The suborder FAVOSITINA Middle-Ordovician - Upper-Permian is abundant. Corals are commonly massive spherical or hemispherical or branching, prismatic corallites are communicated by mural or corner pores (Fig. 2). Favositids are common in most localities of East-Estonia.
