Description This species is closely related to Polysyncraton thallomorphaF. Monniot described from New Caledonia. It differs in its pigmentation, the thickness of the colony, the lenght of the oral siphon, and the size of the lateral thoracic organs. The lack of larvae in our specimens of P. millepore as yet precludes further comparison. [details]
