We are currently working on a significant update to the taxonomy in Corals of the World.
**We would welcome images of rare and unusual species and of location-specific variants of common species. Especially useful images are those where two similar species are present side by side. If you have suitable images that you are prepared to share with us and which you are happy to have published on Corals of the World, please contact us via the Feedback form (bottom banner).
**As we are updating the "similar species" section of the factsheets we would be interested to know what species our users are finding difficult to distinguish. Where there is sufficient need we will include those species pairs in the update.
**Please also inform us of any errors or problems with website function so that these can be fixed.
