Tab`u*la"ta (?), n. pl. [NL., fr. L. tabulatus floored.] Zool.

An artificial group of stony corals including those which have transverse septa in the calicles. The genera Pocillopora and Favosites are examples.

<-- ## note that Pocillopora is italicised but not listed separately in this dictionary. Favosites is not italicised, and has an entry as a headword. Is that the difference between italicisation or not for genus names? -->
