Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Anomastraea irregularis are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Anomastraea irregularis, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Anomastraea irregularis, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

Husbandry

Marenzeller, 1901

Very special thanks to Professor Michael Schleyer from Durban, South Africa for his photo of Anomastraea irregularis.

Colonies are flat or submassive. Corallites are submeandroid to cerioid. Walls are thin and septa have irregularly fused margins. Septa are widely spaced and uniform, giving the colony surface a neat appearance. Tentacles are usually at least partly extended during the day.

Colour: Bluish-grey or cream. Polyps are dark brown.

Habitat: Turbid environments at the base of reefs and in intertidal pools.

Abundance: Common in south-east Africa, uncommon elsewhere.

Similar species: Coeloseris mayeri
