Other species of algae known from baksteenkalk, i.e., Coelosphaeridium sphaericum, Mastopora concava, Vermiporella fragilis and Solenopora spongioides (the algal nature of which is contested, see Riding 2004) occur together with Apidium as well as with Cyclocrinites and as a consequence are not exclusive to a particular assemblage.
These are Otarozoum peri, Harpidella planifrons, Atractocybeloides berneri, Chasmops marginatus, Illaenus jewensis, Solenopora spongioides and Plumulites sp.
Although the absence of evidence is no evidence of absence, it may be telling that Hoeegonites kringla, Solenopora spongioides and Vermiporella fragilis, species which are frequent in type 1 baksteenkalk (cf.

In the Soeginina Beds distinct transgressive features appear compared to the underlying Vesiku Beds: rich normal marine fauna (corals, nautiloids) and numerous bivalves, gastropods, and calcareous algae (Solenopora).
Nautiloids, bivalves, gastropods, dendroid corals, ostracods, calcareous algae (Solenopora), and bryozoans are present.
The fauna consists of the brachiopods Howellella, Kozlowskiellina, Meristina, Atrypa, Protozeuge, Sulcatina, Rhynchotreta, Ancillotoechia, and Lepidoleptaena; trilobites Warburgella and Encrinurus; ostracods Craspedobolbina and Beyrichia; algae Wetheredella, Rothpletzella, Spongiostroma, Hedstroemia, and Solenopora; stromatoporoids Labechia, Stelodictyon, and Ecclimadictyon; and rugose corals Rhegmaphyllum, Neocystiphyllum, Acervularia, Tryplasma, and Spongophylloides (Tsegelnjuk et al.
