The Lower Devonian (Pragian-Emsian) stromatoporoid faunas of Victoria are described. The microstructures of the best preserved specimens are also described and illustrated. The assemblages represent three biostratigraphically distinct assemblages. The biostratigraphically well-constrained Pragian-lower Emsian assemblages exhibit many genera which are not characteristic of Middle rather than Lower Devonian successions in many parts of Asia, Europe and North America. These occurrences indicate that all these forms have significant Lower Devonian records, at least locally. A brief review of the significant features of the Australian Devonian stromatoporoid faunal record is presented, as well as an outline of the global Lower Devonian succession of stromatoporoid faunas. -from Authors
