Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in upper reef slopes and fringing reefs (Ref. 848). Inhabits a wide range of depths and may be more resistant to increased temperatures (Ref. 98471).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Hermaphroditic (Ref. 113712). 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).
