Abstract
    The present catalogue is the first list of Actiniaria and Corallimorpharia from the Canary Islands and from Madeira (Central Macaronesia), including 41 species. The endemic actinofauna supports the idea of Central Macaronesian Archipelagos as a biogeographical unit, different from the other Macaronesian Archipelagos. 21 new records for the area are cited, some of them extending considerably the ranges for the species.
