The distribution of scleractinian corals in the Bay of Biscay, NE Atlantic
Studies on the distribution of scleractinian corals in the Bay of Biscay were relatively numerous during the nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century. Yet, recent reports are scattered,…
Distribution of deep-water corals of the Flemish Cap, Flemish Pass, and the Grand Banks of Newfoundland (Northwest Atlantic Ocean): interaction with fishing activities
The distribution of deep-water corals of the Flemish Cap, Flemish Pass, and the Grand Banks of Newfoundland is described based on bycatch from Spanish/EU bottom trawl groundfish surveys between 40…

Bathymetric distribution data were compiled on benthic Medusozoa (Cnidaria) of the Bay of Biscay and nearby seas, and biodiversity dropped with increasing depth, but Hydroid species richness in the deep bathyal and abyssal is similar and always low.

The Indo-Pacific hydrozoan Eucheilota menoni Kramp 1959 (Cnidaria: Hydrozoa: Lovenellidae) is recorded from the Basque coast (Bay of Biscay, Spain, northeastern Atlantic). This is the first record of…
Occurrence of Savalia savaglia (Anthozoa: Zoantharia) in the Ría de Arousa (Galicia, north-western Spain, north-eastern Atlantic)
Savalia savaglia (Anthozoa: Zoantharia) is an uncommon, large, arborescent, modular species best known from the western basin of the Mediterranean Sea, and recorded recently from the Canary Islands.…
Coralliidae (Anthozoa: Octocorallia) from the INDEMARES 2010 expedition to north and northwest Spain (northeast Atlantic), with delimitation of a new species using both morphological and molecular…
The sclerome of C. johnsoni is more complex than previously thought, with occurrence of double clubs, and 6-, 7- and 8-radiates, and a key is proposed for the identification of all the Atlantic species of the genus Corallium.

The biogeographic results provide evidence for the independent speciation of the Mediterranean species and point to a Miocene origin of the two endemics, highlighting the role played by the Messinian Salinity Crisis in the evolutionary history of Mediterranean organisms.
