Comprehensive Description

Read full entry
Attached to fixed objects but frequently developing into a free-living, detached colony as the result of fragmentation of the original colony. Monoecious or dioecious colonies. The eggs develop inside the female gonophore and become free in the actinula stage. As the possibilities for dispersion of the actinulae are limited many settle on or in the vicinity of the elder.
