Linckia multifora (Lamarck, 1816)

Linckia multifora is easily the most abundant star found at Kwajalein, being common under rocks in the lagoon, exposed on the intertidal reef flat and shallow flat-topped coral pinnacles, in caves and ledges in seaward reef surge channels, and in many other areas as well. It is highly variable, although it is possible that some of those we are calling Linckia multifora are not actually that species.
