New Primnoid Gorgonians (Coelenterata: Octocorallia) from Antarctic Waters
Abstract:Two new genera and species of the gorgonacean family Primnoidae are described and illustrated by scanning electron micrographs. Reproductive polyps of both Tokoprymno maia new genus, new species and Aglaoprimnoa stefanii new genus, new species, are adapted for brooding the young through early stages of larval development. A. stefanii is similar in gross appearance to Armadillogorgia cyathella Bayer, 1980, with which it is compared.
