Exploration of the New England and Corner Rise Seamounts produced four new species of chrysogorgiid octocorals with the spiral iridogorgiid growth form. Three species are described as new in the genus Iridogorgia and one is described in the new genus Rhodaniridogorgia. Both genera have representatives in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Iridogorgia magnispiralis sp. nov., is one of the largest octocorals encountered in the deep sea and seems to be widespread in the Atlantic. 
A New Genus and Species of Bamboo Coral (Octocorallia: Isididae: Keratoisidinae) from the New England Seamounts
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. Expand
A revision of the genus Radicipes Stearns, 1883 (Anthozoa: Octocorallia: Chrysogorgiidae)
TLDR
A revision of Radicipe, with descriptions of previously known species and one new species, Radicipes stonei is presented, with a distribution map of the genus and illustrations for all species are provided. Expand

TLDR
Four new species of Chrysogorgia are described here using a combination of molecular and morphological data, characterized by a sinistral spiral, a character that, with one known exception, has only been reported for Pacific species. Expand

Morphological and Molecular Characterization of Five Species Including Three New Species of Golden Gorgonians (Cnidaria: Octocorallia) from Seamounts in the Western Pacific
TLDR
It is proposed to eliminate the genus Rhodaniridogorgia by establishing a new combination Iridogordia fragilis (Watling, 2007) comb and I. densispiralis sp. nov, which formed a sister clade with I. magnispirali and showed close relationships with I.'spiralis, while I. flexilis sp.Nov. Expand
Deep-Sea Origin and In-Situ Diversification of Chrysogorgiid Octocorals
TLDR
It is suggested that the Chrysogorgiidae as currently described is a polyphyletic family, and phylogeny and depth distribution suggest a shallow-water emergence of some Chrysogogorgia species. Expand

TLDR
Although paleontológica! evidence is scanty, present interpretation of known fossils suggests that complex colonial forms similar to modern pennatulaceans with a high degree of colonial integration were already flourishing in Precambrian times. Expand
