I recently received this email asking for assistance with coral
identification in St. Martin Island, Bangladesh. Would anyone have
pictures or know of a good guidebook for the following coral species?
Sorry this is a long list, but information resources are hard to come by
in that part of the world. The original email follows this list.

Dear Dr. Tupper,
I am writing from Bangladesh. I am really in trouble to get information
regarding Coral ID those we have here in only coral bearing island St.
Martin. We have 66 sps of coral that has been identified by an coral
biologist. we have only the list and no picture. I need to have the
photos to get idea and to train local community to start community based
monitoring. Even the scientific community is not aware the ID and no
information. I wanted write coral list but I do not know the sending
system and email bounced back. I still do not have answer. I conduct
Reef Check survey last winter in Bangladesh. That was only the reef
building coral status. Thus for details and perfect survey you know
definitely it needed to be confirmed the spp. I attached here coral list
those are found in St. Martin. But pls if possible send me photos and
send information if you can on the sps. I need to produce some coral ID
that will be used to do survey under water.
I have some records of coral bleaching that I need to know the sps.
Pls help me if possible.
Thanks very much for your help and cooperation.
