Dear colleagues,

At your attention, another new interesting coral taxonomical paper.  It is remarkable as result of 30 years of fieldwork on the smallest among free-living mushroom corals discovered so far, which are very difficult to identify because they show relatively few distinguishing characters and much ecophenotypic variation:
