Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits seagrass beds, particularly Enhalus acoroides and Thalassia hemprichii, as well as under coralline algae. Larger individuals occupy deeper soft coral rubble areas outside of seagrass habitats (Ref. 103150). Members of the class Holothuroidea are gonochoric and have only one gonad. Spawning and fertilization are both external and some exhibit brooding. Life cycle: Embryos develop into planktotrophic larvae (auricularia) then into doliolaria (barrel-shaped stage) which later metamorphose into juvenile sea cucumbers (Ref. 833).
