Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs on hard corals and hard substrates at depths down to 40 m. Filter feeds on plankton. Associated with shrimps and a lobster (Refs. 800, 100851, 102275) (Ref. 800). Members of the class Crinoidea are gonochoric. During spawning, the pinnule walls rupture and the eggs and sperms are shed into the seawater. Life cycle: Embryos elongate into free-swimming larvae (doliolaria) which later sink to the bottom where they metamorphose into stalked sessile crinoid (Ref. 833).
