Hi all.

WRT the discussion of fossil Caribbean Acropora, the place to look for A. prolifera would be in the Falmouth Formation on the east side of Rio Bueno, Jamaica.  I think I've seen it in there, along with mostly A. cervicornis (in terms of growth form), though it's been a while and somebody ought to look more carefully.  I suspect that the hole I dug in the late 1970's (actually enlarged, somebody else started it) is still there.
