The offspring of Echinophyllia costata are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Echinophyllia costata, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Echinophyllia costata, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
Fenner and Veron, 2000
Description: Colonies are thin delicate laminae with widely but uniformly spaced corallites. Corallites are well defined, becoming immersed, with indistinct walls. Septo-costae form parallel striations irrespective of the position of corallites. Most septa radiate from the corallite centre, but those adjoined to costae remain aligned with the costae. Septo-costae inside corallites are in three indistinct orders. Columellae consist of a few septal spines or are absent.
Similar Species: No other Echinophyllia has septo-costae crossing corallites. Echinophyllia pectinata has similar thin laminae and corallites of similar size.
