Platyphylla, together with the stony coral Acropora palmerae, covered up to half the area of the midridge zone on reefs at Eniwetok Atoll in the Pacific (Odum and Odum, 1955). Dense concentrations of M. alcicornis occur on some reefs in Barbados (Figure 5A) and were observed by the author on a number of reefs in the British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands (Figures 2 and 3). Although millepore coverage is generally less than that of scleractinian corals, Tougas and Porter (2002) found that the former consistently recruited more often and grew faster than their scleractinian counterparts on reefs of the Florida Keys.
