Status In the literature, the family-level taxa Cladocoridae and Cladocorinae have been used very rarely: Boelsche (1866, p. 449) introduced the Latinized form of the family Cladocoriens de Fromentel, 1861; later, Verrill (1870, p. 514) and Klunzinger (1879, p. 73) used the sub-family Cladocorinae which they grouped with Verrill's family Astrangiidae; and Cotteau (1877, p. 224) and De Gregorio (1896) included in their works the family Cladocoridae. It should be noted that in none of these works published after Boelsche (1866) was a reference given to either the author of the family Cladocoridae or to the subfamily Cladocorinae. Later, Alloiteau (1952, p. 620) established the subfamily Cladocorinae which he based on the Agele-concept of Milne Edwards (1857, p. 587), but, like, e.g., Felix (1914, 1925, 1927, 1929), Vaughan and Wells (1943), Wells (1956), he also interpreted the Milne Edwards' Agele-group as a genus-group taxon. His subfamily has been rarely used (e.g., Morycowa and Lefeld, 1966, p. 533). The vast majority of the authors interested in this group has followed the concept by Vaughan and Wells (1943), and Wells (1956) who grouped the genus Cladocora with the family Faviidae Gregory. The family Cladocoridae De Fromentel, 1861, is the earliest available taxon based on the genus Cladocora. Because none of the subsequently described family-level taxa has been in prevailing usage, De Fromentel's family does not represent a nomen oblitum and, therefore, has priority. [details]
