Abstract (in english)
   The study contains supplements to the diagnosis of the genus Leptophyllia Reuss, 1854. This author described representants of two genera under a single specific name, Leptophyllia clavata. One of them, whose representants ornamentation on septa and ribs is composed of grains (cf. Reuss, 1854, Pl. VI - figs. 3 and 6), was reassigned to the genus Acrosmilia d'Orbigny, 1849, by M. Beauvais (1982). The second genus, whose species show penular ornamentation of radial septa (cf. Reuss 1854, P. VI - figs. 4 and 5), remained anonymous till today. It is probable that the genus Leptophylla is concerned. This error of Reuss evoked a controversial discussion on generic characters and systematic position of genera Leptophyllia and Acrosmilia which lasted for decades in the literature. Leptophyllia remains a valid genus. The species Leptophyllia cenomana Milne-Edw. et Haime, 1849, and Leptiphyllaraea svobodai sp.n. are systematically described
