-NORMALLY NOT NOTICED ON CORAL PIECES
Most corals can only be safely identified to species
by microscopic examination of the skeleton.
With some of the large polyp stonys, it is easier
to be certain of a species; but, in many cases what
appears to be one species is really four different
types of corals. Conversely, what looks like
four different types of corals, may indeed be the
same species. I am making identification
generally only to the genus level, since that is all that can be claimed honestly.
