Taxonomic remark This genus was synonymized with Cynarina (see Best and Hoeksema, 1987) but since Daris et al (2016) separated Cynarina lacrymalis from Acanthophyllia deshayesiana, they also separed both species at genus level. Therefore Acanthophyllia became valid again. However, they did not include types in their study and therefore it is not clear which name belongs to each of both species.  [details]
