Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Azooxanthellate. Found in slope at depths 200 to 3000 m (Ref. 116012). 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).
