Dear Mark,

A number of resources are available, depending on what/how you want to use

Species level
- Ruby Moothien-Pillay and colleagues have put together a species-level
guide to Mauritian corals. <kamlaruby.m at gmail.com>

- Charles Sheppard has put together some CD guides to the Indian Ocean,
including one on corals.  <Charles.Sheppard at warwick.ac.uk>

Genus level
- Through the efforts of some students and interns, I and Terney Kumara from
Sri Lanka have put together a genus guide for Indian Ocean corals that has
some species information, but only insofar as helping with genus-level
identifications. This is not yet published though we're looking into that
right now, and knowing whether there is broader interest in such a guide
will help us bring it out faster!!
