Status Favia was originally described by Oken (1815, p. 67), who listed "Favia ananas" (=Favia fragum) first as belonging to the genus. However, according to ICZN Opinion 417 (September 1956), the names originally proposed by Oken (1815) are rejected. Therefore authorship is based on subsequent use of the name. Ehrenberg (1834) was the second to use the name Favia, but assigned an assortment of species to the genus, all of which have been subsequently assigned to other genera. Cuif and Perrin (1999) indicate "Milne-Edwards, 1857" as the author of Favia, after Verrill (1901). This usage was followed by Budd et al. (2011), who designated Milne Edwards' specimen as the neotype. [details]
