Abstract
    The holotype of Anthomastus agilis (family Alcyoniidae) does not have siphonozooids nor the characteristic spiculation of Anthomastus, as originally reported. The specimen is redescribed and transferred to the genus Sinularia. Some additional information and sclerite drawings are given for Sinularia ramosa.
