This species is found on rocky substrates and a wide variety of biogenic substrates like Cliona chilensis, Axinella crinita and Iophon proximum. It is observed at depths of 10 to 35 m (Ref. 87801). 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).
