Note 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Alcyonium globosum was cited as junior synonym of Alcyonium cranium Müller, 1776 (by e.g. Van Soeest, 2001). It is based on a Latin description of Alcyonium cranium in Müller, 1806 with the words: Alcyonium globosum fibrosum flavum setosum. This is not a valid Linnaean binomen and as such not available. Subsequently, De La Beche, 1832 cited a fossil Alcyonium globosum ascribed to Defranc, 1822, but there is no such combination in that publication. Presumably, De la Beche mistakenly meant to cite the fossil Alcyonium globulosum Defrance. De la Beche's Alcyonium globosum is a misspelling or error, but it happens to be a senior homonym of Alcyonium globosum Tixier-Durivault, 1955 (now accepted as Complexum globosum in the famnily Alcyoniidae (Cnidaria Octocorallia). For that reason we maintain the combination sensu De la Beche until the legality of the homonymy has been investigated. [details]
