Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

On abrupt walls; inside underwater excavations and on sponges of the Axinella kind (from where its name) and on various tunicates. Small funds until the greatest depths (Ref. 358). Known from infra- and circalittoral as well as bathyal zones (Ref. 85338). 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).
