Following publication of the original article [1], the authors reported an error on the legend of of P.damicornis in Fig. 1. It is all grey instead of grey and pink gradients. The correct figure is presented here.

Endosymbiont distribution for six coral species collected from two depths (2–5 m and 15–18 m) along five different sites at the northern Red Sea (total n = 163). The map shows the long-term mean of sea surface temperature along the Red Sea and the thermal gradient in the northern Red Sea, including sampling sites. Data obtained from Giovanni Ocean color (https://giovanni.gsfc.nasa.gov/giovanni/, MODIS Aqua 4 km satellite, 4 μm night only) for the period between July 2002 and August 2018. The tile plot represents endosymbiont ITS2 types associated with each coral host, depth, and site separately where site represents a latitudinal gradient (sites on y-axis are arranged from the North (top) to South (bottom)). Three distinct patterns are apparent: (i) high degree of host-symbiont specificity, (ii) absence of depth-specific patterns, except for P. damicornis and F. favus, which changed the ratio of dominant clades with depth, and (iii) symbiont community within each host did not change across the latitudinal gradient, except in S.hystrix. White tiles represent missing samples; representative image of coral hosts above tile plot column for each respective species
