From regional or thematic species database
Harmful effect Produces palytoxin analogues (polyethers). Two compunds isolated, known as mascarenotoxin-A and -B isolated. Toxic to mice. Possibly responsible for palytoxin poisoning, which in humans results in cramps, nausea, diarrhoea, etc, after eating of crabs and certain fish, see Lenoir et al. (2004). [details]

Harmful effect Toxic strains known from the Mascareignes Archipelago, SW Indian Ocean (Lenoir et al. 2004 above) [details]
