    A reasonably comprehensive bibliography of the living and fossil pennatulacean Octocorallia is presented with the goal of including all published accounts regarding the biology of the sea pens. This compilation of approximately 1000 citations represents 533 years of published research. Complete citations for periodicals are used throughout, rather than use of abbreviated notations for journal titles. Many of the citations listed here are annotated with brief descriptive notes in bold print. Taxonomic, geographic, and field-of-study indexes to the literature are included, as well as a synopsis of historical periods in the study of the Pennatulacea.
