Abstract: Hermatypic corals of Easter Island lost their zooxanthellae
following a torrential downpour in mid-June 1980. Whitened corals were seen
islandwide in a patchy distributional pattern. Corals recovered their coloration
within 2-3 months. This was the only occurrence of this phenomenon in
memory of the older islanders, which spans a period in excess of 50 yr.
