Comments Type originally indicated (second species questionably included). This genus name was not validly published in Van Heurck, because (1) the genus may not have been accepted by Van Heurck, (2) two species may be included and no generic description is provided. Van Heurck says, on p. 519, as part of the discussion on genus Acanthodiscus: "As to the curious form which Mr. Brun calls Cotyledon coronalis it requires further examination, and may constitute a new genus, Bruniella H.V.H., in which may also perhaps be included his C. circularis." This refers to the paper on Cotyledon in Brun 1891 (ref. 000176).
