Info

Patiria pectinifera (Muller & Troschel, 1842)

Patiria pectinifera is native to the Sea of Japan, East China Sea and the Yellow Sea. It is also found along the coast of the Russian Federation from Posyet Bay as far as the Strait of Tartary and the southern part of Sakhalin. It is found in the shallow subtidal zone on stony seabeds and other substrates down to depths of 300 m.

Patiria pectinifera feeds on algae and sea grasses, detritus and small invertebrates. It prefers living on coarse sediment to fine sediment and everts its stomachs over a food item to digest it in situ.

Hallo Meerwasser Freunde,

habe gerade eine Überraschende neue Info zu diesen gutaussehenden Sternchen gemacht.
Einer der Hübschen hat sich heute Nacht über eine Fimbriaphyllia ancora hergemacht und sie wohl komplett vernichtet.
Bis gestern Nacht war sie noch in Ordnung, also scheint es so das bestimmte Korallen auch auf dem Speiseplan stehen.
