Abiesgraptus multiramosus is a cyrtograptid
graptolite of the subfamily Linograptidae. It is
known from the Lower Devonian (
- M. hercynicus Zone) of Central
Europe and North Africa.
Abiesgraptus sp. was
found also in Early Devonian deposits of
Yunan, China.  

Bulman (1970, p. V135) described this
complicated graptolite as follows:

"Rhabdosome complex, comprising procladium
and 3 sicular cladia; procladium and central
sicular cladium bear paired thecal cladia; thecae
simple, without apertural modification."
