I hope everything is ok with all.

I would like to know if somebody could help me answering my doubt about the
locality type and the references where can be find these data of the corals

Corals: *Astrangia rathbuni* (Vaughan, 1906) and *Madracis decactis* (Lyman,

Hydrocoral (calcified hydroid): * Millepora alcicornis *Linnaeus, 1758  -
according to Dr. Wallie de Weerdt  (1984), the holotype is unknow, probably
