Key to the genera of Octocorallia exclusive of Pennatulacea (Coelenterata: Anthozoa), with diagnoses of new taxa
A serial key to the genera of Octocorallia exclusive of the Pennatulacea is presented and Ideogorgia is proposed as a replacement ñame for Dendrogorgia Simpson, 1910, not Duchassaing, 1870. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships within the Octocorallia (Cnidaria: Anthozoa) based on nuclear 18S rRNA sequences
Using nuclear 18S’rRNA sequences for 41 species of octocorals, the validity of the historical ordinal divisions and the current subordinal divisions within the subclass Octocorallia were addressed and the phylogenetic affinities of the species D. paucispina were explored. Expand
Revision of the Genera Bellonella, Eleutherobia, Nidalia and Nidaliopsis (Octocorallia: Alcyoniidae and Nidalliidae), with descriptions of two new Genera
Nineteen species of Alcyoniidae formerly assigned to various genera are here placed in the genera Bellonella and Eleutherobia; three new species are described in Bellonella. Sixteen speciesExpand
A generic revision and phylogenetic analysis of the Primnoidae (Cnidaria: Octocorallia)
The origin of the primnoidae is inferred to be from an ancestor living in the Antarctic, making primnoids the deepest-living gorgonacean octocorallian family. Expand
