Coral Listerers!

Have been looking at developing some infographics on stinging cell discharge and would like to use hard corals as the example. However most of the examples / literature I can find reference jellyfish / anemones / non scleractinians.

Am hoping someone can point me in the right direction re: a good summary paper on the classification / structure of cnidoblasts / stinging cells generally so I can sort out how they differ between the main cnidarian groups. Alternatively, a good publication with examples of scleractinian cnidoblasts.

Thanks in advance.
