Abstract :Two specimens, one each of two species of precious coral collected from the Ryukyu Archipelago, are recorded here for the first time, and identified as Hemicorallium cf. sulcatum (Kishinouye, 1903) and Pleurocorallium inutile Kishinouye, 1902, by applying systematics proposed by recent molecular studies (Ardila et al. 2012; Figueroa & Baco 2014; Tu et al. 2015b). The type locality of P. inutile is Kochi Prefecture and that of H. sulcatum is Chiba Prefecture, and recently both species have been recorded from Taiwan (Tu et al. 2012). However, until now there have been no other records from any other location for these two species.
琉球列島にて採取された宝石サンゴ2標本がそれぞれ, ミゾサンゴ近似種Hemicorallium cf. sulcatum (Kishinouye, 1903), 及びダメサンゴPleurocorallium inutile Kishinouye, 1902と同定された. それぞれのタイプ産地は千葉県 (H. sulcatum) と高知県 (P. inutile)であるにも関わらず, これまで台湾での記録 (Tu et al., 2012) があり, 今回は琉球列島と比較的遠方での記録となった. なお,最近の分子系統学的な研究により, サンゴ科を3属に分ける体系が提唱されており (Ardila et al. 2012; Figueroa & Baco 2014; Tu et al. 2015b), 本研究もそれらに倣った.
