Four new genera of soft corals (Coelenterata: Octocorallia), with notes on the classification of some established taxa
TLDR
Four new genera of soft corals (Coelenterata: Octocorallia), with notes on the classification of some established taxa, are proposed to accommodate a number of species wrongly assigned to some established genera.
New species of soft corals (Coelenterata:Octocorallia) from the Laccadive Archipelago
Six new species of soft corals from the family Alcyoniidae are described: Sinularia jasminae sp . nov., S. pamlekari sp. nov., S. kavarauiensis sp. nov., S. gaveslwniae sp. nov., Lobophytum tecticum
A New Genus and species of Box Jellyfish (Cubozoa: Carybdeidae) from Tropical Australian Waters
TLDR
While it shares some characters with other taxa in the Tamoya/Irukandji group of carybdeids, this genus and species of cubozoan is unique in its combination of major morphological characters.
Marine benthic flora and fauna of Gourdon Bay and the Dampier Peninsula in the Kimberley region of North-Western Australia
TLDR
Surveys undertaken to characterise the marine benthic habitats along the Dampier Peninsula and further south at Gourdon Bay in the Kimberley region of Western Australia were augmented with epibenthic sled sampling, a significant number of new species, range extensions and new records for Western Australia and Australia were recorded.
New subfamilies and a new genus and species of Melithaeidae (Coelenterata: Octocorallia: Alcyonacea) with comparative data on the structure of both melithaeid and subergorgiid axes
TLDR
A new genus and new species of the gorgonian family Melithaeidae, Asperaxis karenae, is described, which bears similarities to those of Acabaria, but the axis is quite different from that which is characteristic of the family.
A new sclerite-free genus and species of Clavulariidae (Coelenterata: Octocorallia)
This short communication describing only a single new taxon is necessary to facilitate further research publications by Neil Blackstone & Austin Parrin (Northern Illinois University) and colleagues.

Dampia pocilloporaeformis, a new genus and species of the Alcyonacean family Alcyoniidae , is described , based upon a specimen from the north of Western Australia. The material has affinities to the
Strong Depth-Related Zonation of Megabenthos on a Rocky Continental Margin (∼700–4000 m) off Southern Tasmania, Australia
TLDR
Analysis of imagery and specimen collections taken from a suite of surveys suggest that the observed depth zonation is based in part on changing species mixes with depth, but also an underlying commonality to much of the seamount and rocky substrate biota across all depths.
