Editors' Notes
[Campbell [1954, p.D120] considers Calpophaena Haeckel 1887a [= Cladophatna Haeckel, 1881a] to be an objective synonym of Acrocorona Haeckel, 1881a. He designates Calpophaena tetrarrhabda Haeckel, 1887a, p.1176 as the type species of Acrocorona and only by inference of Calpophaena. Therefore, we consider the type species designation of Calpophaena tetrarrhabda for Calpophaena = Cladophatna to date from Chediya, 1959, p.195.]
