Previously Hickson (1889) had seen more or less extreme growth forms on the reefs of North Celebes, and at that time he distinguished a more or less delicately branched growth form named by him Millepora alcicornis from a plate-like growth form named by him Millepora plicata. Now these growth forms are so strongly different that it seems a matter of fact that they are specifically distinct. Later, however, Hickson made an extensive study of material from expeditions and of
