Captive breeding / propagation

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

Info

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”
Diploria labyrinthiformis
(Linnaeus, 1758)

Characters: Colonies are massive and usually hemispherical. Valleys are meandroid, parallel or sinuous, deep and 5-8 millimetres wide. Ambulacral grooves vary greatly in width within the same colony but may be wider than the valleys giving the superficial appearance of alternating valleys of two different sorts. Columellae are fine and do not form distinct centres.

Colour: Tan to yellowish- or grey-brown.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Common.

Similar species: Colpophyllia natans

Classification: Biota > Animalia (Kingdom) > Cnidaria (Phylum) > Anthozoa (Class) > Hexacorallia (Subclass) > Scleractinia (Order) > Mussidae (Family) > Faviinae (Subfamily) > Diploria (Genus)
