Pseudopterogorgia rigida

(Bielchowsky 1929)
This species is well named, consisting of upright central stems, which are much stiffer and less flexible than the others illustrated here.

Secondary branches emerge from all round the central stems, and are relatively short.

Colour is variable, ranging from pink to nearly black on the central stems, though the secondary branches are usually pale.
