Nomenclatural notes
Woelkerling & De Reviers (2008: 304) concluded that "Lamouroux based Corallina sagittata on material from ''!'!le-de -France" (= Mauritius). The protologue is commonly cited (e.g. Johansen, 1977: 178, Silva et al., 1996: 229, Kim et al., 2007: 1317) as occurring in Quoy & Gaimard (1824-1826: 625), but our evidence suggests that it first appeared in Lamouroux et al. (1824: 215)." - (23 May 2018) - M.D. Guiry
