Short description Morphology

Formation: encrusting, can be submassive; small colonies have a conspicuous central corallite. Corallites: plocoid; becomes widely spaced at colony edges. Septa: with long pointed teeth. Fleshy tissue over skeleton present. Color: dark brown, rust red, or green (Ref. 848).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in protected reef environments (Ref. 848). Members of the class Anthozoa are either gonochoric or hermaphroditic. Mature gametes are shed into the coelenteron and spawned through the mouth. Life cycle: The zygote develops into a planktonic planula larva. Metamorphosis begins with early morphogenesis of tentacles, septa and pharynx before larval settlement on the aboral end (Ref. 833).
