Short description Morphology

The stony coral are not colonial. Vertical size skeleton reaches 0.25 mm, its section is round; at base not narrowed in normal conditions. End of the tentacles forming a small spherical bludgeon brown; white or pink polyps (Ref. 358).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Vertical skeleton size: 0.25 cm (Ref. 358). Habitat: Interior of underwater caves and anfractuosities, lower level of rock overhangs, bottom and walls of rock nature little exposed to the light species present of the small funds until greater depth (Ref. 358). Known from infra- and circalittoral zones (Ref. 85338). 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).
