Husbandry

Oligometra serripinna (Carpenter, 1881)

Oligometra serripinna is one of the most abundant crinoids in australian waters. Known from Ashmore Reef, Timor Sea; Lord Howe I., Tasman Sea; Houtman Abrolhos, WA, to Tweed River, NSW, Australia

A flexible crinoid with only ten arms, usually quite small (arm length 30 to 60 mm) but sometimes larger (up to 140 mm). A good ring of cirri. Mottled or banded colour pattern with brown, cream and/or pale yellow.

This species can be found most on reef slopes and patch reefs, clinging to gorgonians and other narrow objects. It is most abundant at sites with a strong flow of water. The biology of Oligometra serripinna is the best known for any species of tropical crinoid.
