Column Size: 8 to 10 cm in height. Fishing is done artisanalement, with the dredger. Consumed primarily in Sicily. The species meets on all the Mediterranean circumference between a few meters and a hundred meters, on sandy-muddy or detrital substrates (Ref. 363). Known from infra- and circalittoral as well as bathyal zones (Ref. 85338). Solitary (Ref. 2377). 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).
