I'm glad Helmut has brought this topic up.  We have some mid-Atlantic 
trench scleractinians in the Canadian Museum of Nature that are being 
studied by a post-doc at McMaster.  Her interest in these animals was 
piqued by the discovery that some living scleractinians from the Grand 
Banks were several thousands of years old.  These are now being 
studied for evidence related to climate change, etc.  

Sorry, no refs.  perhaps some lurkers out there will have more info.
