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). 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).
