Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy According to Veron & Pichon (1982), G. minor Crossland, 1852 has priority over its synonym G. pedunculata Quoy & Gaimard, 1833, but since the former is a junior synonym it should be considered invalid and the G. pedunculata should be considered valid. [details]
