Husbandry

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”

Gyrosmilia interrupta
(Ehrenberg, 1834)

Characters: Colonies are submassive humps or are laminar with free margins. They are commonly up to 0.5 metres across. Valleys are approximately 8 millimetres wide and tend to radiate and bifurcate towards the colony margins. Septa are uniformly spaced and exsert. They form a thin ridge along the walls and plunge steeply in valley centres. There are no columellae. Tentacles are extended only at night.

Colour: Distinctive uniform greenish grey-brown.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments protected from strong wave action.

Abundance: Usually uncommon.

Similar species: Ctenella chagius , Meandrina meandrites

Source reference: Veron (2000). Taxonomic reference: Scheer and Pillai (1983). Additional identification guide: Sheppard and Sheppard (1991).
