A revision of the genus Heterogorgia Verrill, 1868 (Anthozoa: Octocorallia: Plexauridae)

Heterogorgia is characterised by colonies composed of a number of stout stems that branch laterally and irregularly and arise from a conspicuous spreading holdfast and is recommended to be considered for regional biodiversity estimates and biogeography analyses consider the erroneous status of the species that are still listed as Heterogordia within the data sets.

Two new endemic species of Gorgoniidae (Cnidaria, Anthozoa, Octocorallia) from Revillagigedo Archipelago, Mexico.

Two new species of the genera Eugorgia and Leptogorgia were discovered while underwater collecting at the Revillagigedo Archipelago, Mexico, and morphological features suggest they may enhance speciation processes supporting the comparatively high endemism of the islands benthic fauna as well.

A revision of the genus Psammogorgia Verrill, 1868 (Cnidaria, Anthozoa, Octocorallia) in the tropical eastern Pacific Ocean

A taxonomic revision of the genus Psammogorgia is presented based on type material which was morphologically analysed and illustrated using optical and scanning electron microscopy and three lectotypes and a new combination are proposed to establish the taxonomic status of these species.

A revision of the genus Muricea Lamouroux, 1821 (Anthozoa, Octocorallia) in the eastern Pacific. Part I: Eumuricea Verrill, 1869 revisited

It is concluded that the eastern Pacific species should be placed in the genus Muricea and form a group characterised by tubular calyces that comprises four species at present,Muricea acervata, Muricee hispida, Muricesa squarrosa, and MuriceA tubigera and a dubious species Murice a horrida.

A revision of the genus Muricea Lamouroux, 1821 (Anthozoa, Octocorallia) in the eastern Pacific. Part II

The second part of the Muricea revision dealing with the species-group characterised by shelf-like calyces instead of tubular-likecalyces is presented, concluding that the genus MuriceA comprises 20 valid species, including the previous four in theMuricea squarrosa-group.

Two new gorgonian species (Anthozoa: Octocorallia: Gorgoniidae) from Ecuador (Eastern Pacific)

Two new gorgonian species of the gorgoniid genera Eugorgia and Leptogorgia are described from Los Ahorcados (Ecuador, Eastern Pacific) with distinctive features, including the red colony colour and the coenenchymal sclerites.

Two new species of gorgonian octocorals from the Tropical Eastern Pacific Biogeographic Region (Cnidaria, Anthozoa, Gorgoniidae)

Two new species of gorgoniid Eugorgia, exclusively an eastern Pacific genus, are described, increasing the number of species in the genus to 15, and contribute to the knowledge of the eastern Pacific octocoral biodiversity.

A review of gorgonian coral species (Cnidaria, Octocorallia, Alcyonacea) held in the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History research collection: focus on species from Scleraxonia, Holaxonia, Calcaxonia – Part II: Species of Holaxonia, families Gorgoniidae and Plexauridae

This is the first comprehensive work, in three parts, focusing on all species of gorgonian coral known to inhabit the California Bight, and continues the systematic review of all species represented in the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History research collection.

A review of gorgonian coral species (Cnidaria, Octocorallia, Alcyonacea) held in the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History research collection: focus on species from Scleraxonia, Holaxonia, and Calcaxonia – Part I: Introduction, species of Scleraxonia and Holaxonia (Family Acanthogorgiidae)

This is the first comprehensive work that reviews the research collection of SBMNH, which focuses on species of gorgonian coral known to inhabit the California Bight, and displays an emphasis on species belonging to the Holaxonia, particularly the plexaurids.

A new species of plexaurid genus Psammogorgia is described from Isla San Gallán, Paracas National Reserve, Peru, which increases species richness within a genus that has not been studied for more than a century, and contributes to the establishment of characters for further morphological studies.

Cladistic analysis of amino acid sequence data, including evaluation of all equally or almost equally parsimonious cladograms, shows that much homoplasy (parallelisms and reversals) is present and that few or no well supported monophyletic groups of families can be demonstrated.

BRANCH SUPPORT AND TREE STABILITY

Abstract— Branch support is quantified as the extra length needed to lose a branch in the consensus of near‐most‐parsimonious trees. This approach is based solely on the original data, as opposed to
