Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species is capable of transverse fission; separation of sexes (Ref. 87801). Known from infra- and circalittoral zones (Ref. 85338), at depths of 1 to 100 m (Ref. 87801). Found on rocky and biogenic substrates such as shells, worm tubes, algae, etc. It is observed to detach from the substratum when disturbed and it is capable of creeping and swimming with its moving tentacles and OD head (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).
