    Disphyllum mcleani n. sp., Temnophyllum wellinense n. sp. and Pseudozaphrentis zamkowae (WRZOLEK, 1993) are described in detail and come from the Givetian Term d'Haurs Formation, on the south side of the Dinant Synclinorium. This subdivision belongs to the top of the Polygnathus hemiansatus Zone and to the Lower P. varcus Zone. Temnophyllum wetlinense is present at the base of the lithostratigraphic unit together with Argutastrea quadrigemina (GOLDFUSS, 1826) refigured herein. Disphyllum mcleani and Pseudozaphrentis zamkowae have only been observed very sparsely, respectively in the middle and upper parts of the Terres d'Haurs Formation. At its top occur already a few species characteristic of the lower part of the overlying Mont d'Haurs Formation. The area located between Beauraing and Resteigne to the east of Givet is compared to that more eastern of Hotton where the Terres d'Haurs Formation is thicker and richer in coral beds.
