Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species is found on rocky and biogenic substrata such as gastropods, mytilids, polychaete tubes, barnacles and dead gorgonians at depths of 3 to 30 m. They are also seen in shallow waters of fjords that are influenced by low salinity surface layer (Ref. 87801). 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).
