‘the cape verdean coralline community’ - complexity structure of capeverdien infralittoral community of some hard corals with macro & corallinaceae algae in water surge zone (Espequinho, Santa Luzia MPA). This shot has showed us the massive pavements of the white encrusting zoanthid (Palythoa caribaeorum) and small pomacentrid schools, evidenced by the endemic Chromis lubbocki (fish in the middle).
