The scleractinians from the Miocene to the Pleistocene of Sicily and Calabria by Giuseppe Seguenza (1864, 1880) (Cnidaria, Anthozoa). In his two major publictions dealing with corals, Seguenza described many new taxa of scleractinians: 4 new genera, 103 new species, 7 new varieties. He also mentioned many species by other authors. Part of his collections are preserved in museums in Italy and abroad. The taxa are commented (but not formally revised), mainly on the basis of descriptions and illustrations (only few authentical specimens could be examined). Most of Seguenza’s new species ere Plio-Pleistocene in age, and most of these are bathyal forms. While some of these still live in the Mediterranean, others became extinct there but survive in the Atlantic.
