|Abstract:||The frequent heavy–scale climatic oscillations and the recent local disturbances on the reefs worldwide were a menace for biodiversity sustenance. The major concern is that many species of Scleractinian corals could have been lost while being unaware of their existence. The recent survey yielded Cycloseris cyclolites after 29 years in the reef areas of the Gulf of Mannar Marine National Park.|
