Caption: Bubble coral infested with aceol flatworm. The flatworms (Wamiona sp. ,round orange disks) are feeding on the detritus caught in the mucus on the surface of the bubble coral (Plerogyra sinuosa). The coral may contain symbiotic algae in its tissue causing the brown colouration of the flatworms. Photographed in South-East Asia.
