Colonies of Lophelia coral with outstretched feeding polyps were discovered at 385 meters along the upper crest of a small mound at the north end of De Soto Canyon. Galatheid crabs seen here are strongly associated with reefs of Lophelia. Dead Lophelia skeletons below living colonies with live anemones were also observed here.
