Short description Morphology

Colonies form flat, unifacial, explanate or encrusting plates, commonly arranged in whorls. Corallites are in concentric valleys. Centers are widely spaced. Long and short septo-costae clearly alternate. Rust brown in color, usually with pale margins. Mouths are white and star-shaped.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Maximum depth from Ref. 116012. Zooxanthellate (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).
