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:

  1. Sagenella bohemica
  2. (Prantl, 1933) Early Devonian Emsian Czech Republic WoRMS 1413586
  3. Sagenella consimilis
  4. (Lonsdale, 1839) Silurian England, USA, Sweden WoRMS 1413587
  5. Sagenella elegans
  6. Hall, 1876 Silurian Wenlockian USA Indiana WoRMS 1407964
  7. Sagenella heterogyra
  8. (McCoy, 1850) Ordovician/Silurian England WoRMS 1413588
  9. Sagenella membranacea
  10. Hall, 1851 Silurian Wenlockian USA New York WoRMS 1407965

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.
