Minimum depth from Ref. 865. It is found on rocks, occasionally on sand from the very low intertidal to a depth of 90 meters (Ref. 865). 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).
