During several expeditions to the Seychelles, Mozambique and South-East Africa (1966, 1969, 1972) organized by the Musee Royal de l'Afrique Centrale et Tervuren and the Universite Libre de Bruxelles, a large collection of stony corals was made. A short explanation on the problem of the identification of Scleractinian corals and the level reached at the presented time is given. A historical review on previous work carried out in this area is summarized and a comparison with Pacific coral reef studies is made. Finally a list of the species collected is given with some taxonomical, ecological or geographical data whenever needed.
