Abstract
    Two new species of rugose corals, namely Phillipsastrea kergarvanensis n. sp. and P. morzadeci n. sp., are described in detail and have been collected at Kergarvan in Plougastel-Daoulas lying in the Rade de Brest, at the western border of the Median Synclinorium, Armorican Massif, France. They come from the lower to the middle part of the Kergarvan Formation which belongs to the Upper Givetian, in the Schmidtognathus hermanni-Polygnathus cristatus conodont Zone. This discovery completes the palaeobiogeographic distribution of the genus Phillipsastrea d'ORBIGNY, 1849 that occurs in the Upper Givetian as an ubiquitous taxon, though well established at the North Gondwana and South Laurussia margins.
