   M.AtLB.Ro.MixCor.DisSol  Discrete Solenosmilia variabilis colonies on Atlantic lower bathyal rock and other hard substrata

This biotope is a deeper variant of discrete Lophelia pertusa colonies where L. pertusa is replaced by S. variabilis occuring on bedrock. The same assemblage was recorded on coarse sediment but associated species are likely to differ. Characterising species listed refer to all discrete Solenosmilia variabilis assemblages not just those found associated with the zone and substrate specified in this biotope.
