A western Atlantic anemone-commensal assemblage associated with the anemone Lebrunia danae is described and compared to the well known Bartholomea annulata assemblage. L. danae and B. annulata share several species of Periclimenes, Thor amboinensis, Mithrax
commensalis, and Stenorhynchus seticornis. An unidentified clinid and ophiuroid also associated with L. danae. Alpheus armatus, common to B. annulata, were not found with L. danae in the study area off Grand Bahama. Microhabitat distributions for assemblages
associated with both anemones are given for the study area and comparisons are made with anemone complexes in the Virgin Islands. Additional information is presented on nematocyst type and distribution, zooxanthellae, algal mimicry, and behavior of L. danae.
