Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Bowerbank listed this name in the 1861 list without description or any further information. Later (1862, 1864) he used the combination Polymastia robusta, which he substantiated in 1866 with a description and in 1874 with illustrations. Only recently, Polymastia robusta was accepted as a junior synonym of Alcyonium boletiforme Lamarck, 1815 (now Polymastia boiletiformis). [details]
