Abstract: Clipperton Atoll was visited from 23 to 25 November 1997. A
total of 109 specimens of stony corals belonging to two orders, seven families,
and 15 species was collected. Five taxa of Scleractinia represent new records for
the atoll: Porites lutea, Porites australiensis, Psammocora superficialis, Astrangia
sp., and Balanophylliasp. With these new records and species previously reported
in the literature, the total number of scleractinians now known at Clipperton
Atoll is 18 species. Observations on the fossil terraces on the island and
on the dead coral fauna of the inner lagoon are presented.
