Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits lower reef slopes and bottom and reefs exposed to strong tidal currents; on rock or sand substrates (Ref. 81117). 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).
