The Magnitude of Global Marine Species Diversity
The first register of the marine species of the world is compiled and it is estimated that between one-third and two-thirds of marine species may be undescribed, and previous estimates of there being well over one million marine species appear highly unlikely. Expand
Living genera of sea pens (Coelenterata: Octocorallia: Pennatulacea): illustrated key and synopses
An illustrated dichotomous key and synopses of the 32 genera of living pennatulacean octocorals are presented, which incorporate new morphological and distributional data from the examination of recently collected material and a revised classification and phylogenetic considerations are presented.

The Global Diversity of Sea Pens (Cnidaria: Octocorallia: Pennatulacea)
The pennatulacean octocorals, a group of cnidarians commonly referred to as sea pens or sea feathers, is treats new discoveries and taxa new to science, and provides greater resolution in geographic and bathymetric distributions data than was previously known. Expand
Resurrection of the octocorallian genus Antillogorgia for Caribbean species previously assigned to Pseudopterogorgia , and a taxonomic assessment of the relationship of these genera with Leptogorgia
The genus Antillogorgia Bayer, 1951 is resurrected for species of zooxanthellate, pinnately-branched gorgonians with sc-lerite complements that include well-developed scaphoids, and inhabit coralExpand
New taxa and revisionary systematics of alcyonacean octocorals from the Pacific coast of North America (Cnidaria, Anthozoa)
A new genus is named for a plexaurid sea fan originally described in the Indo-Pacific genus Euplexaura, and discussions are included that compare the species to related taxa, or provide revisionary assessments. Expand
Diversity and Distribution of Octocorallia
Octocorals are a group of striking presence in marine benthic communities. With approximately 3400 valid species the taxonomy of the group is still not resolved, mainly because of the variability ofExpand
