"Paly's" and Zoanthids?

Are they all Zoanthinds and a Paly is a form of Zoanthid? Is there any place that gives distinct descriptions and definitions of both?

Somewhat old info, but not a bad starting point.

Zoanthid is a general terms encompassing zoa like animals (Zoanthus, Palythoa, Protopalythoa, Neozoanthus, Isaurus, Acrozoanthus, etc.). Paly's can often be misnomers, but telling them apart from Zoanthus can be difficult. The main difference is that Paly's take in grit/sand, etc. into the coenenchyme (stalks/mats), where Zoanthus don't.
