Abstract: This is a list of 227 coral species recorded in the National Park of American Samoa based primarily on a series of photo images by the principal author and identified by Charles Birkeland and Douglas Fenner. Of the 227 species (five identified only to genus) 108 are documented by the photos and 123 are listed based upon the surveys and transects by Birkeland, Coles, Craig, Fisk, Hunter, Maragos and/or Mundt. This report forms a basis for certifying a list of corals in the National Park of American Samoa for inclusion in the National Park Service’s on-line park biota inventory database (NPSpecies) of the U.S. national parks.
