Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in subtidal areas on submerged reef tops, ledges in walls and rocky slopes. Often found in indentations or crevices in reef surface (Ref. 86439). Also in wave-washed lagoon margins (Ref. 98471). 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).
