Climate / Range
This species is similar in size and shape to fungia fungites and is found in same biotopes. It is distinguished by highly exsert septa of lower order septa. The lower surface shows a similar difference in the height of costae of higher and lower orders (Ref. 269).
Similar to Fungia fungites also found in the same biotopes (Ref. 269). 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).
