"Microporella, nov. gen.
(Lepralia, part, Johnston &c.
Reptoporina, part, D'Orbigny.)
Zoarium incrusting; zoooecia with a semicircular aperture the lower margin straight and entire; a semilunate or circular pore below it.
Type Lepralia ciliata, Pallas.
The Reptoporina of D'Orbigny includes this group; but as it also embraces a miscellaneous assemblage of forms, it seems better to employ a new name." (Hinks, 1877: 526-7)
