Cynarina savignyi Brüggemann, 1877, p. 305; Original Designation Brüggemann, 1877: 305
Type Specimen: Holotype; NHM ; Lost; Dry Preserved
Type Locality: Red Sea, Gulf of Suez (Recent)
The NHM has a specimen labelled "Cynarina savignyi" with the catalogue number 19126.96.36.1992 (see Crossland, 1952); however this specimen does not appear to be one of Brüggemann's types. Wells' (1964) indicates that there are 8 Brüggemann type specimens, including 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, and an unnumbered specimen. This species was later synonymized with Caryophyllia lacrymalis Milne Edwards and Haime, 1849, p.239, pl.8, fig. 1,1a. The type specimen of lacrymalis is also reported as lost (Wells, 1964).
