Info

Yabe & Sugiyama, 1935

Colonies of Pseudosiderastrea tayamai are encrusting to slightly dome-shaped and up to 160 millimeters across.
The corallites are cerioid, polygonal and about 3-6 millimeters in diameter.
Colour: Pale grey in color with distinctive white corallite walls but may also be uniform brown in the western Indian Ocean.

The stony coral is found in very shallow wat r and usually attached to bare rocks in a depzh range of 0 to 20 meters..

Members of the class Anthozoa are either gonochoric or hermaphroditic.
Mature gametes are shed into the coelenteron and spawned through the mouth.
Life cycle: The zygote develops into a planktonic planula larva.
Metamorphosis begins with early morphogenesis of tentacles, septa and pharynx before larval settlement on the aboral end.
