Depth information is reported for Singapore. Found on reef crest through slope to bottom on rocky or sandy substrates; at depths of 3 to 20 m (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).
