Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority Hartman catalogue credits Savigny with the authorship of Galeolaria but this appears baseless. The taxa came to the Paris museum from Australia, not the Red Sea, and a footnote in Savigny's 1822 Egypt monograph credits the authorship to Lamarck.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy Galeolaria Lamarck, 1818 is the senior homonym of Galeolaria Blainville, 1830 in Cnidaria: Hydrozoa: Siphonophorae, a thus invalid name replaced by Galeta Stechow, 1921, in turn regarded as a junior synonym of Sulculeolaria Blainville, 1830. The Cnidaria names originally placed under the cnidarian Galeolaria genus are thus recombined into Sulculeolaria.

Note that Dew (1959:37) has a comment on the siphonophore taxon Galeolaria australis (in the context of Galeolaria the serpulid polychaete genus name). This comment might be open to misinterpretation. It was not a case of a cnidarian initially misidentified as a polychaete, rather the two genera names were simply accidental homonyms.
