All these species apart from Alcyonium
digitatum showed a significant difference between fishing grounds (Table 2, Figure 4).

Color variation is a feature that has been regarded as important at the time of defining taxonomic status for different species groups (Endler et al., 2005), including different groups of marine invertebrates such as the starfish genus, Echinaster (Tuttle & Lindahl, 1980), the anemone, Actinia equine (Linnaeus, 1767) (Quicke et al., 1983), the sponge, Oscarella lobularis (Schmidt, 1862) (Boury-Esnault et al., 1992); the soft coral, Alcyonium
coralloides (Pallas, 1766) (McFadden, 1999), and the nemertean genus, Quasitetrastemma (Zaslavskaya et al., 2010).

Bacterial community structure associated with the Antarctic soft coral, Alcyonium
Divers also found seals swimming underwater and large expanses of the soft coral alcyonium
digitatum, also known as dead man's fingers, near the Smalls, a remote set of rocks nearly 30 miles off the Pembrokeshire mainland.
Contributions of sexual and asexual reproduction to population structure in the clonal soft coral, Alcyonium
On the coasts of Brittany and Monterey, the upper circumlittoral consists of mixed populations of corallinaceous algae (Mesophyllum, Lithothamnium, Lithophyllum), laminar rhodophytes (Rhodymenia, Fryeella, Phycodrys), and suspensivorous animals (sponges like Axinella, alcyonarians like Alcyonium
, or Paralcyonium), but they do not form communities as complex as those in the Mediterranean.
