Two new dimorphic genera and species of soft coral (Coelenterata: Octocorallia: Nidaliidae)
Two new dimorphic genera and species of soft coral (Coelenterata: Octocorallia: Nidaliidae)

We describe two new dimorphic genera and species of Nidaliidae with some similarities to the genus Nidaliopsis Kükenthal, 1906. One was collected at Heard Island in the Southern Ocean and is unusual in that it has siphonozooids with calyces, and the other was collected off the Kimberley coast of Western Australia and is notable for the large sclerites in the armature of the autozooid polyps. Both taxa were collected at a depth close to 500 m.

Abstract

We describe two new dimorphic genera and species of Nidaliidae with some similarities to the genus Nidaliopsis Kükenthal, 1906. One was collected at Heard Island in the Southern Ocean and is unusual in that it has siphonozooids with calyces, and the other was collected off the Kimberley coast of Western Australia and is notable for the large sclerites in the armature of the autozooid polyps. Both taxa were collected at a depth close to 500 m.
