"Although C. tenuiviolacea (Pulitzer-Finali 1982) from the Great Barrier Reef resembles C. paterifera in the distinctive pink to violet color and presence of abnormal anatriaenes, it remains to be investigated if these two species could be synonymized. We could not access type material from C. tenuiviolacea, and from the bad conditions of preservation noted by Pulitzer-Finali (1982) in his type specimen, it is not possible to determine whether the specimen has or does not have the peduncle characteristic of C. paterifera."
