Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found along the neritic zone, in reef areas. A predatory carnivore (Ref. 97241). Has a high bleaching level and moderate to high estimated mortality in Palau (Ref. 66144). Members of the class Anthozoa are both gonochoric and hermaphroditic. Mature gametes are shed into the coelenteron and spawned through the mouth. Fertilization is usually external. 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).
