During the Second 'Xarifa' Expedition under the leadership of Dr. Hans Hass one of the authors (Scheer) made a representative collection of corals from Pulau Perak, Sembilan Islands and Pulau Jarak (between 4 and 6 deg. N and 98 and 102 deg. E) in the Strait of Malacca. All the specimens are preserved in Hessian State Museum, Darmstadt, West Germany and include 38 species divided among 20 genera of 12 families. A detailed taxonomic account of the various species is given and the known geographic distribution of many species is extended westward from the Pacific.
