Millepora alcicornis (Hydrozoa: Capitata) at Ascension Island: confirmed identity based on morphological and molecular analyses

Abstract

The reef-building fire coral Millepora alcicornis is reported from Ascension Island (South Atlantic). This record, based on a recent expedition to Ascension, is the first in which the identification of a Millepora coral is supported by photographic evidence from the field and by morphological and molecular analyses of collected specimens. This finding is discussed in relation to earlier Millepora records from Ascension and the biogeographic range of this particular species in the Atlantic.
