The variation between the corallites in a fragment of a massive Mississippian coral from northeast British Columbia embraces structures which are typically developed in Lithostrotion, Lithostrotionella and Thysanophyllum. The affinities of these and related forms are discussed. It is considered that Lithostrotionella and Thysanophyllum are genomorphs of Lithostrotion but that Thysanophyllum is a polyphyletic form which may have arisen from several different lineages.
