Sorry, no etymologies found.
_Zoophyta_ Syringopora reticulata, Turbinolia fungites, Lithostrotion irregulare.
It presents in the cross section the same radiated structure as the _Turbinolia fungites_, and nearly the same furrowed appearance in the longitudinal one; but, seen in the larger specimens, we find that it was a branched coral, with obtuse forky boughs, in each of which, it is probable, from their general structure, there lived a single polype.
