Info

Epizoanthus leptoderma is a colonial crustal anemone that ideally forms 80 - 90 polyps per colony
The polyps are elongated, moderately fused and are formed by slightly thick, encrusted coenenchyma.

Colour: The zoanthid is tan, with narrow, transverse, brown bands on the tentacles of the polyps.

As this crust anemone has no zooxanthellae embedded in its tissue, it is dependent on catching microplankton such as copepods.

Reproduction: Separate sexes by fertilization of eggs by sperm.

Postural history of this crustal anemone is not known.

Our special thanks for the first photo of this species goes to Phil Garner, California, USA.
