Abstract: The morphology of sessile invertebrates, such as scleractinian corals, can be controlled by environmental and genetic mechanisms and, consequently, it is highly variable. Morphological variation has puzzled taxonomists by posing challenges to species classification within cryptic species complexes. The 'Atlantic Siderastrea Complex' is a suitable example. Because of overlapping diagnostic traits, the morphological interspecific limits of this group remain controversial and often resulted in doubtful synonyms. … Show more

“…Best et al (1983) propose a new dimension to the analysis in Scleractinia taxonomy when suggest that in fossil record and current species, within a geographically limited area, the intraspecific variation can be 'intracolonial', 'intrapopulation' and 'interpopulation'. Menezes et al (2013) observe that intracolonial variation is not an important problem to differentiate S. stellata from S. radians. In the present study, we focus on the others categories of morphological variation, describing the intraspecific and interspecific variation of S. stellata and S. radians in Brazilian reef systems.…”

“…Most studies on morphological variation of the 'Atlantic Siderastrea Complex' were realized with S. siderea (Foster, 1979(Foster, , 1980. In Brazil, a few studies focus in describe morphological variation of siderastreids (Werner, 1996;Neves, 2004;Santos et al, 2004;Neves et al, 2010;Menezes et al, 2013).…”

“…A classificação "alto" se refere às áreas do mapa com um risco acumulado de >66% da pontuação máxima de risco para qualquer combinação de fator de estresse/habitat, "médio" entre 33-66%, e "baixo" risco entre 0-33%. Diante do recente estudo de Menezes et al (2013), no qual é discutida a problemática da identificação de espécies crípticas do complexo Siderastrea do Atlântico, optou-se por utilizar a abreviatura "spp." para todas as colônias identificadas dentro desse gênero para evitar identificações equivocadas.…”
