Abstract

Two new species of Flabellum are described from the southwest Indian Ocean, representing extremes of morphological variation within the genus. One of them, F. kerguelensis, is the first scleractinian coral reported from the Kerguelen Plateau. Flabellum now consists of 44 extant species, making it the fifth most species-rich genus in the order.
