Abstract
    The Mont d'Haurs Formation, which belongs to the Lower Polygnathus varcus Zone, reaches a thickness of about 180 metres between Beauraing and Han-sur-Lesse, on the south side of the Dinant Synclinorium. Argutastrea tenuiseptata COEN-AUBERT & LÜTTE, 1990, Sociophyllum isactis (FRECH, 1886) and S. wedekindi n. sp. are characteristic of its lower part whereas Sunophyllum beichuanense HE, 1978, Argutastrea wangi (TSIEN, 1978) and Wapitiphyllum laxum (GÜRICH, 1896) occur in its upper part. Moreover, the latter species is still present at the base of the overlying Fromelennes Formation. Sociophyllum isactis, S. wedekindi and Sunophyllum beichuanense are described in detail. A neotype is proposed for Wapitiphyllum laxum; the neotype of Sociophyllum isactis is revised and refigured.
