Notes 
From editor or global species database

Cadus galea (Linnaues, 1758) in Röding, 1798
Dolium galea (Linnaeus, 1758) in Lamarck, 1801
Cadium galea (Linnaeus, 1758) in Link, 1807 [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Buccinum costatum magnum Martini, 1777 treated as a synonym of Tonna galea (Linnaeus, 1758). It is unavailable as non-binominal. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Dolium galea var. spiritrorsum "de Gregorio" Paetel, 1887 [sic]. Treated as a synonym of Tonna galea (Linnaeus, 1758). Error for Dolium galea var. spirintrorsum de Gregorio, 1884 [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Beu (2005:119) listed the name Dolium crenulatum Philippi, 1845 in the synonymy of Tonna galea (Linnaeus, 1758) following his - conditional (cf Beu, 2005:121) - assimilation of Tonna zonata (Green, 1830) with that species.  [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The species currently referred to Tonna galea (Linnaeus, 1758) was referred to under that name by (a. o.): Winckworth & Tomlin (1933:210); Turner (1948:173); Dodge (1956:164-165); Abbott & Morris (1995:206); Vos (1999:44); Ardovini & Cossignani (2004:121) [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Beu (2005:119) listed the name Dolium ampullaceum Philippi, 1846a in the synonymy of Tonna galea (Linnaeus, 1758), a vision not substantiated by Vos (2007:60) who separated the two species based on the drawing in Philippi (1849; 1851) and material from his own collection. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Beu (2005:119) lists the name Dolium zonatum (Green, 1830) in the synonymy of Tonna galea (Linnaeus, 1758), with the remark (2005:121) that he is - at that point - not sure whether two species or a single species is concerned. Vos (2007:57-67) separated the two species based on the available recent material. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The species currently referred to as Tonna zonata (Green, 1830) was referred to as Tonna galea (Linnaeus, 1758) by (a. o.): Hinton (1974:19; 1977:26); Abbott & Dance (1982:118): Thach (2005:92) [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Beu (2005:119) listed the name Dolium galea var. tenebrosa Hanley, 1860 in the synonymy of Tonna galea (Linnaeus, 1758), a vision not substantiated by Vos (2007:60) who separated the two species based on available recent material. [details]
