Short description Morphology

Closely set polyps on encrusting coenenchyme. Body-wall is thin, the greater part is occupied by the mesogloea with strands across the ectoderm. Ectoderm may be obliterated by a mass of sandy encrustation. Mesogloea with cell-islets and lacunae, but encircling sinus is absent. Very short imperfect mesenteries (Ref. 89044).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in rock-pools between tide-marks (Ref. 89044). 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).
