Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This is a benthic mobile species found on primnoid gorgonians at depths of 10 to 610 m. It has a mouth capable of opening very wide, allowing it to prey on octocorals (Ref. 87801). 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).
