Discosoma nummiforme cf


©Anne Hoggett: Discosoma nummiforme cf on the outer slope of Day Reef near Lizard Island. Each polyp is about 10 cm diameter. Thanks to Joe Rowlett for the identification. It is listed as "cf" here not because he was uncertain but because we have been unable to find other records of the species from the GBR.
