Bahia Culebra ha sido la localidad de mayor estudio de esta region, y en ella se describieron la presencia de especies poco comunes de coral como Cycloseris curvata, Leptoseris papyracea y Pocillopora meandrina (Jimenez, 2001a; Cortes, & Jimenez, 2003; Cortes, Jimenez, Fonseca, & Alvarado, 2010).
Meandrina meandrites presented a single type, C3, in depths above 12 m, and a combination of types C3 and B1 below that depth (Figure 2a).

She found that when juveniles of a coral species called Pocillopora meandrina were ready to attach to a reef surface, they were colonized by bacteria.
Habitat: los especimenes fueron recolectados sobre sustratos rocosos y sobre colonias coralinas, particularmente en formas cerebroides (Diploria spp., Meandrina spp.)
La Bahia posee relictos coralinos de poca extension, dentro de los cuales se encuentran las siguientes especies: Porites porites, Agaricia spp, Meandrina meandrites, Acropora cervicornis, A.
Meandrina meandrites (coral meandro / butterprint brain coral): como su nombre lo indica sus polipos se ubican a manera de meandros, formando una estructura similar a la del coral cerebro.
In other species there are no discrete individual polyps, a situation that leads to the familiar "brain coral" colony morphology (e.g., Platygira meandrina).
Each grid consisted of 18 coral heads (6 coral heads of each of 3 coral species: Porites compressa, Pocillopora meandrina, Montipora verrucosa).
De ellas, solo dos no aparecieron en los transectos paralelos a la costa: Pocillopora meandrina (Dana 1846) y Psammocora contigua (Esper 1794), sino que se les encontro en los transectos perpendiculares, y en las revisiones del arrecife.
Similar phylogenetic clades of bacteria were detected in 16S rRNA gene sequence clone libraries from multiple larval specimens of the Caribbean coral Porites astreoides (Sharp et al., 2012) and in the Pacific coral Pocillopora meandrina (Apprill et al., 2009), suggesting that some groups of bacteria are common across different coral species.
Tambien, otras especies masivas (Diploria spp., Meandrina meandrites, Isophyllastrea rigida, Colpophyllia natans) estan colonizando espacios y depresiones entre el andamio muerto (Coral & Caicedo, 1983).
