Abstract The Laroona Formation and Mount Podge Limestone are defined for the lower conglomerates and micaceous sandstones, and the upper coralline limestones exposed in the Mount Podge area, north Queensland. Acanthophyttum (Acanthophyllum) clermontense -Protomacgeea fauna from these two units (mainly from the Mount Podge Limestone) in the area is of late Emsian age, and comparable with other Emsian to early Eifelian coral faunas from Queensland and New South Wales. Fifteen species belonging to 14 genera (one genus and 7 species new) are described from the Mount Podge Limestone, including Microplasma ronense (Mansuy 1913), Lekanophyllum laroonaense sp. nov., Sanidophyilum sp., Tabulophyllum carinatum sp. nov., Carlinastraea callosa sp. nov., Australophyllum sp., Xystriphyllum cf. dunstani (Etheridge 1911), X. cf. magnum Hill 1942a, Taimyrophyttum pedderi sp. nov., Laroonaphyllum jacki gen. et sp. nov., Acanthophyllum (Acanthophyllum) clermontense (Etheridge 1911), Disphyllum (Disphyllum) paracouvinense sp. nov., Phillipsastrea sp. cf. maculosa Hill 1942a, Protomacgeea minor sp. nov. and Thamnophyllum sp., and one new species Gaynaphyllum runningense sp. nov. from the very top of the underlying Laroona Formation.
