Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Bernard, 1897
Colonies are submassive, the surface being irregular mounds covered by irregular tuberculae. There is complete continuity in size between the mounds and tuberculae. Corallites are distributed irregularly although they are less common in tuberculae. The coenosteum is irregularly coarse.

Colour: Mottled brown and white.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Rare.

Similar species: Montipora efflorescens
