Very special thanks for the first photos of
Ovabunda andamanensis to Michael P. Janes, Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

Ovabunda andamanensis is a genus of soft corals in the Xeniidae family and was collected along the eastern coast of Phuket Island, Thailand.

Colonies occur in low abundance, spaced 1-2 meters apart on small ledges of vertical walls growing among sea fans, corallimorpharians, and Dendronephthya sp. soft corals in a depth of 10 meters.

Living colonies exhibit tan colored stalks; white polyp bodies and tentacles, and pinkish pinnules.
