Acanthodesia Canu & Bassler, 1919

Type species: Flustra savartii Audouin, 1826

After discussion with others, I have elected to return to placing Acanthodesia as a subjective synonym of Biflustra. For an alternative view, see Taylor & Tan (2015).

This genus includes the species:

  • Acanthodesia variegata
  • Di Martino & Taylor, 2018 Holocene Indonesia
  • Acanthodesia savartii
  • (Audouin, 1826) Recent
    Pliocene
    Cosmopolitan tropical
    Europe
