Short description
A fragile, weedy species often found in dense thickets in a depth of about 6 to 20 m. Individual colonies (up to 30 cm diameter) are formed of thin branches (0.2 to 0.5 cm diameter) which frequently bifurcate and anastomose. Corallites are tiny, superficial, and form rows running from the tip to the base of the branch (Ref. 269).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in dense thickets in a depth of about 6 to 20 m (Ref. 269), especially in intertidal reef flats (Ref. 98471). Zooxanthellae (Ref. 19). 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). Spring to summer (Ref. 113712).
