Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Moseleya latistellata Quelch, 1884

The following Infos are from AISM Website: Characters: Colonies are flat, submassive, usually disc-like, and sometimes free-living. Corallites are cerioid with a large central corallite (up to 35 mm diameter) surrounded concentrically with angular daughter corallites.

Similar Species: May resemble the mussid Acanthastrea (especially A. bowerbanki), which can have the same colony and corallite shapes. Acanthastrea has more fleshy polyps, much larger septal teeth and never has large paliform lobes. See also Goniastrea palauensis.
