    Abstract

    The first to mention corals of the Red Sea was Thomas SHAW, who travelled through Tunisis , Algeria, Egypt, Syria and the Sinai Peninsula, and who in his "Travels or observations re lati ng to several parts of Barbary and the Levant" described 24 corals of Et Tur (1738, German edition 1765). From these one can recognize P1atygyra, Favia, Goniastrea, Acropora, Stylophora and Tubipora, but his Latin descriptions are not sufficient for an identification at a species level.
