From the Coniacian to Santonian of the Gosau Group in Austria, six new genera (Astraraeatrochus, Geroastrea, Pachyheterocoenia, Pachyphylliopsis, Paractinacis, Synhydnophora) within the families Astraraeidae, Heterocoeniidae, Negoporitidae, Phyllosmiliidae, and Synastraeidae, and 12 new species of Scleractinian corals are established (Astraraeatrochus bachi, Crinopora ireneae, Crinopora thomasi, Geroastrea alexi, Gosaviaraea aimeae, Nefocoenia seewaldi, Nefocoenia werneri, Pachyheterocoenia leipnerae, Pachyphylliopsis magnum, Paractinacis uliae, Proplesiastraea rivkae, and Synhydnophora wagreichi). The new taxa emerged during a systematic revision of the coral fauna of the so-called Gosau facies in the area of Rußbach and Gosau (Austria), which was for the first time carried out by the systematic preparation of thin sections and the application of more profound measurements of the corallite dimensions.
