Coral species of Brazil can be found in the papers by Laborel 1967 and 1969 
and the book by Hetzios 1994.  The Veron 2000 book also has the Brazillian 
corals, but you will have to flip many pages of other corals to find them.. 
The Smith book probably has them as well, but maybe not all of them.  A good 
place to find these kinds of references is in Veron 2000.   -Doug

Hello, my name is Alex.
I Would like to know if there is a coral list species and it´s distribution
