AbstractSinularia mauritiana, a new soft coral (family Alcyoniidae) from shallow subtidal waters off Mauritius (Western Indian ocean) is described. Extremely long clubs in the surface layer of the lobes, the presence of eight-radiates in the surface layer of the base, and the many spindles with simple tubercles in the interior of the lobes, separate it from previously described species.
