Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

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

Agaricia lamarcki
Milne Edwards and Haime, 1851


Characters: Colonies form flat, unifacial, explanate or encrusting plates, commonly arranged in whorls. Corallites are in concentric valleys. Centres are widely spaced (3-5 per cm). Long and short septo-costae clearly alternate.

Colour: Rust brown, usually with pale margins. Mouths are white and star-shaped, a useful identification aid.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Common.

Similar species: Agaricia grahamae

Source reference: Veron (2000). Taxonomic references: Wells (1973b), Fenner (1999). Additional identification guide: Humann (1993).
