Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs on sand, rubble or corals at depths of 0 to 30 m (Ref. 800). Also on sponges (Ref. 82802). Grazes on organic surface of rocky and sandy substrates. Feeds on small sessile invertebrates (Ref. 800). Members of the class Asteroidea exhibit both asexual (regeneration and clonal) and sexual (gonochoric) means of reproduction. Life cycle: Embryos hatch into planktonic larvae and later metamorphose into pentamorous juveniles which develop into young sea stars with stubby arms (Ref. 833).
