    To our knowledge, this is the first report of P. lutea's daytime spawning as early as July in Hawaiian waters. The take home message is clear - not all corals spawn at night or do our observations of P. lutea's spawning behaviors correspond to any particular lunar phase. In fact, our observations suggest spawnings are random during periods of warmer water.
