Note(s): The red macroalga, Dasyopsis spinuligera (Collins & Hervey) Howe is epizoic on the reef-building coral, Madracis decactis (Lyman 1859). Upper photo = O.3X, lower photo = I.OX). During a 1996 expedition to the eastern Caribbean, we observed an epizoic species of Dasyopsis colonizing and killing the mound -forming coral, M. decactis, 1.5-m deep on the windward seagrass flats off Caicos Island.
