The coral fauna of the Midway Eocene of Texas includes thirteen separate species and varieties. Only two of the species, each represented in a single locality by a single specimen, belong to the colonial types. The remaining eleven species, containing probably 95 per cent of the specimens, are all of solitary forms. Evidently the Texas Midway seas did not afford conditions favorable to the growth of reef-building corals.
