Scaps, P, and Haapkyla, J (2011) Focal white spots on Porites spp. from the north Andaman Sea, Western Thailand and the Wakatobi Marine National Park, Indonesia. Galaxea, Journal of Coral Reef Studies, 13. pp. 3-4.
[Extract] Focal bleached spots are commonly recorded on Porites, Montipora and Acropora (Beeden et al. 2008). During a diving expedition in April 2010 to the pinnacle of Hin Daeng ('Red Rock') (7°9'1"N; 98°49'20"E), in the Andaman Sea off Western Thailand, we discovered a new type of focal white spots on a massive colony of Porites lobata Dana, 1846.
