Dear Chuck

I suggest you to read the paper titled;

What is hermatypic? 
A redefinition of ecological groups in corals and other organisms 
Helmut Schuhmacher and Helmut Zibrowius
Coral Reefs (1985) 4: 1-9
Also, I think the term hermatypic and ahermatypic was first suggested by Wells JW in 1933 in his paper titled;

Wells JW (1933) Corals of the Cretaceous of the Atlantic and Gulf 
coastal plains and western interior of the United States. Bull Am 
Paleontol 18:85-288 

This is according to my knowledge....
