Abstract

A new species of coral, Favia camranensis sp. n., from the Hon Nai reef, Cam Ranh Bay, in southern Vietnam is described. This coral differs from all known faviids in that its corallites project one above another by more than 2 mm. The septa and septa-costae are heavily ornamented with complexly serrated trabecular spines. This coral can form monospecific aggregations of 5–20 colonies.
