From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Lamarck's Alcyonium species: these were reexamined by Topsent (1933). Next to several clear cases of true Alcyonium species (Cnidaria), most of them are indeed sponges, but of approximately seven species Topsent doubted the sponge nature. These names are not included in the World Porifera Database. [details]
