Nomenclature Pocillopora grandis Dana, 1846 is a senior synonym of P. eydouxi Milne Edwards, 1860 (see Gardiner 1897). It therefore has priority, even though Veron & Pichon (1976) and Schmidt-Roach et al. (2014) state that P. eydouxi has preference because it has been more commonly used. Reversal of precedence should be executed according to ICZN Code Article 23.9.

Nomenclature Pocillopora grandis Dana, 1846 is a senior synonym of P. eydouxi Milne Edwards, 1860 (see Gardiner 1897). It therefore has priority, even though Veron & Pichon (1976) and Schmidt-Roach et al. (2014) state that P. eydouxi has preference because it has been more commonly used. Reversal of precedence should be executed according to ICZN Code Article 23.9.
