Coral Listers,

A full-list of hermatypic corals at Okinotorishima (Okinotori Island), an isolated reef in NW Pacific, has just published in Galaxea, Journal of Coral Reef Studies, JCRS 
at https://www.jstage.jst.go.jp/article/galaxea/14/1/14_73/_article/
which fills a gap of coral biogeography in this area close to the Coral Triangle  by Veron and Nishihira in NW Pacific.
The number of species are only 93, lower than those at around.

The paper also compiles and analyzes the coral species lists in the Ryukyus, Japan, Taiwan, Mariana, and Palau, so far obtained,
and presents a coral species cluster analysis in this area with full species lists in these sites.

I hope the paper will help those who study this area.

Best wishes,
