From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorValidity The illustration of Eucratea wallaysii suggests that it is not only not a species of Eucratea, but not even a bryozoan. The branching is wrong. The other drawings on the page are reasonably well depicted so the one of E. wallaysii should be taken to be more or less accurate. But he doesn't indicate zooids, the internodes are of unequal width, and branching is not uniformly dichotomous (if this really were Eucratea). Could he have mistakenly depicted an alga? [details]
