Abstract Alcyonacean (Gorgonian) coral species from Holaxonia (not previously reviewed in this three-part work), family Plexauridae, as well as species in Calcaxonia were reviewed. Specimens examined were collected from the California Bight and adjacent areas, many now held in the research collection of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History (SBMNH). The collection has incorporated numerous specimens collected by the Allan Hancock Foundation (AHF) ‘Velero’ Expeditions of 1931–1941 and 1948…

The Biology and Evolution of Calcite and Aragonite Mineralization in Octocorallia
TLDR
It is argued that studying aragonite-forming could provide insight on octocoral, and more generally anthozoan, biomineralization, and it is essential to comprehensively study how skeletons form and evolved within this ecologically important group of marine animals.

A revision of the genus Thouarella Gray, 1870 (Octocorallia: Primnoidae), including an illustrated dichotomous key, a new species description, and comments on Plumarella Gray, 1870 and Dasystenella, Versluys, 1906.
TLDR
An illustrated dichotomous key and detailed character table of the 25 Thouarella species are presented alongside an up-to-date account of all species described in the 19th and 20th centuries and summaries of the few described from 2000 onwards.
A review of the genus Primnoa (Octocorallia: Gorgonacea: Primnoidae), with the description of two new species
TLDR
Reexamination of old preparations to obtain additional views of polyps has shown that specimens mounted more than 20 yrs ago still give satisfactory results with SEM, demonstrating that whole mounts for SEM remain useful for a considerable period of time and therefore merit long-term conservation.
A generic revision and phylogenetic analysis of the Primnoidae (Cnidaria: Octocorallia)
TLDR
The origin of the primnoidae is inferred to be from an ancestor living in the Antarctic, making primnoids the deepest-living gorgonacean octocorallian family.

Abstract: Nine deep-water primnoid octocoral species are described from Hawaiian waters, four of them as new species, bringing the total number of octocoral species known from Hawai‘i to 94.
A revision of the Primnoidae (Octocorallia: Acyonacea) from the Aleutian Islands and Bering Sea
TLDR
Nineteen of the 31 octocoral species known from the Aleutian Islands belong to family Primnoidae, which form large deep-water colonies providing habitat for one of the most productive fisheries in the North Pacific.
