Although known from only a few specimens, this is a very distinctive species. The broad shape of the eleozooid rostra serve to distinguish Elea mackinneyi from sympatric Elea elegantula sp. nov., and it differs from E. viskovae sp. nov. from the Turonian of the Kazakhstan in having longer rostra and in lacking an appreciable autozooidal apertural shelf. Distribution. Lower Cenomanian of Germany. Material. Holotype: VH 10462, Upper Campanian, St Severin d'Uzel, Charente Maritime, France. Paratypes: VH 10461, same horizon and locality as holotype; VH 10471, Senonian, La gare de Soullans, Vendee, France. BMNH BZ 441-4 , Upper Campanian, Cailleau, near Talmont, Charente Maritime, France. Other material: VH unnumbered topo- types. Name. With reference to its similarity to Elea lamellosa (d'Orbigny). Description. Colony bifoliate, consisting of broad, folded fronds about 0-9 mm deep. Growing edge may be occluded by kenozooids and eleozooids. Colony base not observed. Overgrowths may be present. Zooids arranged in approxi- mate quincunx; organization fixed-walled. Autozooids (Figs 72, 76) medium-sized, frontally hexago- nal in outline, on average 1-6 x as long as wide, distal edge prolonged by aperture; frontal wall slightly convex, with circular pseudopores; zooecial boundary wall inconspicuous, thin, little ra
