Taxonavigation

Ordo: Filifera
Familia: Stylasteridae

Name

Distichopora Lamarck, 1816Wikispecies linkPensoft Profile

Diagnosis

Colonies usually flabellate, with blunt branch tips. Coenosteum reticulate-granular and of many colors. Gastropores aligned along branch edge or, more rarely, meandering in lines on colony faces, the gastropore rows flanked (usually on both sides) by rows of horseshoe-shaped dactylopore spines. Gastro- and dactylopore tubes axial, extending along branch axis. Dactylostyles absent. Gastrostyles elongate (needle-shaped), often stabilized by transverse tabulae; a diffuse ring palisade sometimes present. Ampullae usually superficial and clustered.

Discussion

Equally diverse in tropical and temperate waters as well as in shallow and deep environments, Distichopora is known from 26 Recent species and two fossil species (see Appeltans et al. 2001[1]: WoRMS data base: www.marinespecies.org). The genus was revised by Boschma (1959)[2] and Cairns (1983b)[3].

Type species

Millepora violacea Pallas, 1766, by monotypy.

Distribution

Eocene to Recent: cosmopolitan except for off Antarctica, 1-806 m.
