Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Fairly short-lived, occurring in late spring or summer and feeding especially on barnacle nauplii; preyed on by Aequorea and other medusivorous hydromedusae (Ref. 2376). Members of the order Anthoathecata are mostly colonial A-form hydroids. Life cycle: The zygote develops into planula inside the gonophore and is later released as an actinula which metamorphoses into polyp stage (Ref. 833).
