I got this from a fish-ecology listserv and wanted to know if anyone  
knew more about it.  Is this new or are they really  
referring to white band disease?

New  Coral  Disease.  On Aug.  28, 1995, an Associate Press release 
noted reports of a new  "white line disease" killing elliptical star 
coral in the Florida Keys.  While some scientists speculate  that  a 
virus  might  be responsible, others are cautious in suggesting what 
may be promoting this disease.} [Assoc Press]
