|MEANDROGRAPTUS Moberg, 1892
Type species: Meandrograptus schmalenseei Moberg, 1892
|Original diagnosis (from Bulman 1932):
"Several thecae proceed directly from the sicula in the neighbourhood of the broad end. The form of the initial part recalls somewhat that of the genus Dicellograptus. The distal parts of both branches are on the contrary constructed on the Didymograptus plan, for which reason ther new genus may to some extent be regarded as a connecting link between Dicellograptus and Didymograptus."
Bulman's description in Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology V116-117):
"Reclined stipes of almost uniform width, composed of somewhat undulating elongate thecae with low inclination and large overlap; development of isograptid type, 1st theca of each stipe distally reclined."
