From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorIdentification Manetell (1822, p. 178) indicated Alcyonium ficus sensu Linnaeus, 1767 as the type of Choanites, followed by a description of a fossil assumed to belong to Linnaeus' Alcyonium ficus. It is generally acknowledged that Alcyonium ficus Pallas, 1766 and also Linnaeus' 1767 record concern a tunicate, not a sponge, making Choanites a genus of the Tunicata. Assignments by various authors of Suberites species to Choanites thus need (re-)transfer to Suberites[details]
