Info

Über die Weichkoralle Stereonephthya cordylophora gibt es extrem wenig zu berichten, die Erstbeschreibung ist im Internet leider nicht zu finden:

Verseveldt, J. (1973). Octocorallia from north-western Madagascar (Part IIIC). Koninkl. Nederl. Akademie van Wetenschappen - Amsterdam, Proceedings Ser. C. 76(2): 141-157.

In solchen Fällen bliebe dann nur eine aufwendige Recherche in Bibliotheken von Universitäten oder Naturkundemuseen, was wir aber in diesem Fall nicht angehen können.
Uns sind von der Koralle auch keine Importe, Verkäufe in Fachhandelsgeschäften oder Haltungsinformationen bekannt.
