Report of a Zoanthus Zone from the Cabo Verde Islands

ECOCV co- authored an article about the discovery of the large zone of Zoanthus, a genus of colonial cnidarians in Porto Cais Bay, Maio Island. Molecular analyses showed that the carpet in was formed mainly by the two species: Zoanthus sociatus and Zoanthus solanderi. Our work demonstrated the presence of the ‘Zoanthus zone’ in the Central East Atlantic and added two new records of Zoanthus species in the Cabo Verde Islands.
