In this ingenious but unnatural system, octocorals were split between Zoocorallia (the Pennatulacea and Alcyonacea) and Phytocorallia (all of the Gorgonacea, with Hcllopora grouped with Millepora). The most significant advance in octocoral classification was made by Valenciennes (1855) in the abstract of a larger, more detailed monograph that never was published.
