The morphology of the genus Metriophyllum has been investigated with the aid of serial sections and the skeletal structure of the coral is described in detail. A review of all recorded species of Metriophyllum is made and a revised description is given of M. bouchardi and M. gracile; in addition a new species is described from the Ilfracombe Beds (Middle/Upper Devonian) of north Devon.
