Sagenella Hall, 1851

Type species: Sagenella membranacea Hall, 1851

The synonymy of the type species with Aulopora consimilis Lonsdale, 1839 is not accepted in Brood (1975). Snell (2004) considers this synonymy to be possible but unconfirmed until re-examination of type material.

This genus includes the species:

Sagenella bohemica (Prantl, 1933) Early Devonian Emsian Czech Republic
Sagenella consimilis (Lonsdale, 1839) Silurian England, USA, Sweden
Sagenella elegans Hall, 1876 Silurian Wenlockian USA Indiana
Sagenella heterogyra (McCoy, 1850) Ordovician/Silurian England
Sagenella membranacea Hall, 1851 Silurian Wenlockian USA New York

This information is based upon various sources, but no personal knowledge. I am indebted to the late Alan Horowitz for his compilation, and to Dr. J. Pachut.
I would be grateful for corrections to, or critical reviews of this information. This is not a 'final' version (an impossible ideal), but a working document.
