Dear All,

This is a forwarded question / request:

> Does anyone know of scleractinian corals that have spiculae/crystal-like
structures inside their tentacles, looking like the ones on the SEM
photographs on the webpage
http://home.hetnet.nl/~ascidians/website/webpagespic.htm ? Could anyone tell
me what these structures are?
