Graphical abstract
An overview of Dutch Caribbean zoantharians has been published as an article in the journal Diversity. It includes the description of Parazoanthus atlanticus, a new species that was found in Bonaire and Curaçao. An undescribed species was found with the Curasub at depths below 200 m. The article deals with old collection material (present in Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden, The Netherlands) and with new observations.
