Copepoda siphonostomatoida associated with West Indian hermatypic corals 1: Associates of scleractinia: Faviinae
Abstract:The great majority of the Copepoda associated with hermatypic corals in the Indo-Pacific belong to the Lichomolgoidea and Xariffiidae. In the West Indies the associates belong almost entirely to the Asterocheridae and Corallovexiidae. Four genera of the scleractinian subfamily Faviinae occur in Curaçao. Species of each coral genus carry a specific copepod associate of the family Asterocheridae: four new species in four genera, of which two are new.
