Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Cryptic, rare on reef flat, lagoon and seaward reef (Ref. 102252). Also on a reef slope (Ref. 97449). Ophidiasterids are typical substrate film-feeders as well as on rock-encrusting organisms (Ref. 108108). Members of the class Asteroidea exhibit both asexual (regeneration and clonal) and sexual (gonochoric) means of reproduction. Life cycle: Embryos hatch into planktonic larvae and later metamorphose into pentamorous juveniles which develop into young sea stars with stubby arms (Ref. 833).
