A large specimen of Iridogorgia Verrill, 1883 (over 1.2 m long) is just visible at the bottom of the camera frame at ~850 m on Clark seamount, Kermadec Ridge. The two red laser points just above the coral in the image are 20cm apart. Credit: DTIS Camera, NIWA. Vulnerable Deep Sea Communities Programme.
