Abstract Thirteen species of deep-water calcaxonian octocorals belonging to the families Primnoidae, Chrysogorgiidae, and Isididae collected from off the Galápagos and Cocos Islands are described and
Influence of Frederick (Ted) M. Bayer on deep-water octocoral research
Ted Bayer was the first to use scanning electron microscope images of sclerites to describe species, and perfected that technique in the use of SEM stereo pairs, proving that all gorgoniids have a diagnostic type of axial mineralogy.
Phylogenetic Relationships Within Chrysogorgia (Alcyonacea: Octocorallia), a Morphologically Diverse Genus of Octocoral, Revealed Using a Target Enrichment Approach
This study shows that an integrative approach consisting of molecular and morphological methods will be essential to a proper revision of Chrysogorgia taxonomy and to understand regional diversity of these ecologically important corals.
Pseudochrysogorgia bellona n. gen., n. sp.: a new genus and species of chrysogorgiid octocoral (Coelenterata, Anthozoa) from the Coral Sea

Morphology and phylogenetic analysis of two new deep-sea species of Chrysogorgia (Cnidaria, Octocorallia, Chrysogorgiidae) from Kocebu Guyot (Magellan seamounts) in the Pacific Ocean
Two new species of Chrysogorgia Duchassaing & Michelotti, 1864 collected from Kocebu Guyot in the Magellan seamounts of the Pacific Ocean are described and illustrated and molecular phylogenetic analysis indicates that C. ramificanssp.
A revision of the genus Radicipes Stearns, 1883 (Anthozoa: Octocorallia: Chrysogorgiidae)
A revision of Radicipe, with descriptions of previously known species and one new species, Radicipes stonei is presented, with a distribution map of the genus and illustrations for all species are provided.
Deep-Sea Coral Taxa in the Hawaiian Archipelago and other U.S. Pacific Islands: Depth and Geographical Distribution

Nearly 50 species of various octocorals have been identified based on studies of this type and geographic distribution and bathymetric ranges are indicated for all these species in the Caribbean and particularly Colombia.
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 of
Molecular and morphological data support reclassification of the octocoral genus Isidoides
The familial placement of Isidoides is amended to incertae sedis, as the phylogenetic relationships among Isididae subfamilies remain poorly resolved, and a novel gene order is discovered that is, based on available data, unique among metazoans.
