Abstract
    Several levels with Phillipsastrea have been sampled in the Upper Givetian of the Tafilalt and the Ma'der (Morocco) and have been dated by conodonts. P. weyeri COEN-AUBERT, 2002, P. tafilaltensis COEN-AUBERT, 2002 and Acanthophyllum simplex (WALTHER, 1929) are present in all the outcrops investigated. They are associated in the Ma'der with Neotemnophyllum breve n. sp. Phillipsastrea hollardi COEN-AUBERT, 2002, Siphonophrentis laskowae WRZOLEK, 2002 and S. crassa n. sp.; the first species is restricted to the Upper Polygnathus varcus Zone whereas the three others occur also in the Upper Klapperina disparilis Zone. In the Tafilalt, the accompanying fauna in the Upper Klapperina disparilis and Lower Mesotaxis falsiovalis Zones is characterized by Thamnophyllum amessouicum n. sp., Neoacinophyllum bultyncki n. sp., Siphonophrentis wangi n. sp. and Neotemnophyllum sp. The latter three taxa suggest an influence of the Western Yunnan in China. However, the remaining fauna shows affinities with that from the Upper Givetian of Western Europe and Poland.
