    Previously undetected earlier phases of the coral disease
    'atramentous necrosis' are documented and described. New
    observations relating to the occurrence of initial stages and
    progression of the disease are reported, and potential cause(s) are
    examined. In direct contrast to earlier published findings,
    temperature data indicated that occurrence of early bleached stages
    of atramentous necrosis is not correlated with warmer water
    temperatures; however, the relationship between temperature and
    disease prevalence is still unclear.
