    Temnophyllum majus WALTHER, 1929, T. imperfectum n. sp., Spinophyllum spongiosum (SCHLÜTER, 1889) and S. blacourti (ROHART, 1988) are described in detail and come mainly from the lower part of the Givetian Mont d'Haurs Formation, on the south side of the Dinant Synclinorium. The type specimens of S. spongiosum, Temnophyllum majus, T. latum WALTHER, 1929 and T. clavatum WALTHER, 1929 as well as the holotype of Spinophyllum altevogti (OLIVER & SORAUF, 1988) are refigured herein. As a whole, the fauna from the Mont d'Haurs Formation, which belongs to the Lower Polygnathus varcus Zone, is widely distributed in various areas of Europe and Asia and shows strong affinities with the Givetian rugose corals of Germany and the Boulonnais in France.
