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

Colonies are free-living, circular in outline and are flat or form a central dome. Most colonies are regenerated from fragments and thus have a central area of parallel septo-costae (the original fragment) surrounded by a border of peripheral septo-costae which are perpendicular to the margin. Mouths are distinctive in the central area, but are small or absent in peripheral areas. Septo-costae are in two or three orders. Septal spines are tall with elaborated teeth.
Colour: Grey-brown. Mouths are not distinctively coloured.
Habitat: Sheltered habitats.
