A bamboo coral collected during a deep-sea expedition to the Bahamas in 2009 proved to have a unique combination of features for a member of the bamboo coral subfamily Keratoisidinae: the structure and shape of the polyps, the sclerites consisting entirely of rods, some of which extend the length of the polyp, the delicateness of the branches with solid internodes, and the deep funnel construction of the peristomal region into which the tentacles can contract. The specimens are described as a…

TLDR
The development of biotechnological cultivation processes of Isididae corals according to the aquacultural conditions to obtain “living bone implants” is the next challenging task.

TLDR
A new genus and species are described that is unusual in that it branches from the internodes yet has sclerites at the base of the polyp body that are arranged obliquely, and in having tentacles that can be pulled completely into the top of thepolyp over the retracted oral disk.

TLDR
The concept of biological spandrels-including the examples here given of masculinized genitalia in female hyenas, exaptive use of an umbilicus as a brooding chamber by snails, the shoulder hump of the giant Irish deer, and several key features of human mentality-anchors the critique of overreliance upon adaptive scenarios in evolutionary explanation.
