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.

Description A large, stoutly branched Pocillopora, whose branches are generally considerably larger than the other species of this genus in the Indian Ocean. Branches are flattened to keel shaped, branching occasionally and irregularly. On the branches, the verrucae are regularly spaced on all sides (Sheppard, 1998).
Colonies are composed of stout, upright, flattened branches. They may be widely separated, or compact, especially where currents are strong. Colour: pale to dark green or brown. Abundance: Common, especially on exposed reef fronts and where currents are strong. May form mono-specific stands of several metres in diameter (Veron, 1986). [details]

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.
