Abstract

Periodic surveys of the subtidal epifaunal community on the gorgonian Melithaea flabellifera were conducted over a five year period at the Izu Peninsula, southern Japan. The occurrence patterns of epifaunal species on M. flabellifera were examined. The epifauna consisted of 16 species representing five phyla. The amphipod Incisocalliope symbioticus dominated (usually >80%) and occurred throughout the study.
