Aglaozonia pacifica Setchell
Type locality: French Polynesia: Barrier reef off Papeete, Tahiti (Setchell 1926: 90). Holotype: W.A. Setchell; 26.v.1922; On Porolithon, over corals. UC 261174 (Vieira et al. 2016: 700). Notes: "Since only a very small fragment of the holotype remains in UC, no morphological or molecular analyses were performed on the type material of Lobophora pacifica. The type material associated with this name is demonstrably ambiguous and cannot be critically identified. Consequently, an epitype collected at the type locality was selected. Epitype (designated by Vieira et al. 2016: 700): French Polynesia, Fa’aa: Vicinity of Papeete, Moorea, Feb 2014, M. Zubia UPF026 (PC barcode PC0063045)
