1500 samples of corals have been collected by the author since 1969, in the different reef communities of the Mascarene archipelago, from 0 to 50 meters by scuba diving. A total of 135 species (including six species of non-scleractinian corals, belonging to 68 genera (including the genera Millepora, Heliopora, Distichopora) known to date are listed in this paper. Variations in the distribution of genera and species between the three islands can be attributed primarily to a more or less great diversity in the biota of the islands, and secondarily to the disparity in the repesent status of our knowledge of the different islands.
