Coral Reef Project—Papers in Memory of Dr. Thomas F. Goreau. 2.
New and Old Scleractinian Corals from Jamaica
Abstract:The underwater studies of Jamaican reefs carried out during the past 17 years by the late T. F. Goreau and his colleagues have turned up a number of new species of scleractinian corals and disclosed the common occurrence at depth of several species previously thought to be rare. The new forms include one species of Madracis, one of Agaricia, three of Mycetophyllia, one of Gardineria, and new forms of Eusmilia fastigiata and Agaricia fragilis. Earlier named but poorly known species discussed and figured are: Agaricia undata (Ellis & Solander), Agaricia lamarcki Milne Edwards & Haime, A. tenuifolia (Dana), Helioseris cucullata (Ellis & Solander), Colpophyllia breviserialis Milne Edwards & Haime, Mycetophyllia danaana Milne Edwards & Haime, and Dichacoenia stellaris Milne Edwards & Haime.
