From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy Linnaeus's Pennatula 1758 is a good name for the cnidarians, as this was used first. This homonym of the copepods was created when they were tacked on just because they kind of looked like the cnidarians. Linnaeus did not have a clue. This name is enshrined in the coelenterate order Pennatulacea, where the genus is still found, unburdened by parasitic copepods.

The first of these Linnaean copepod species was Pennatula filosa, taken from the Mediterranean swordfish. The second was Pennatula sagitta, found on the sargassum fish. Subsequent investigators mentioned that Linnaeus’s host notations were about the only useful characteristics he provided (Stebbing 1905). Since Linnaeus’s time, other features have been defined, and both species are valid. Oken (1815), without knowing their true nature, but seeing that these parasites were not as “other” coral-like polyps, proposed the appropriate name Pennella, the “little feather,” for the copepods. Linnaeus’s species names are retained, so that the two species are now Pennella sagitta (Linnaeus, 1758), the type species of Oken's genus, and Pennella filosa (Linnaeus, 1758), both now in the siphonostome family Pennellidae (see Kabata 1979). [details]
