Coral list,

Can anyone out there provide information on the reproductive ecology of Stephanocoenia michellinii?

I have found in the literature that S. michellinii is a broadcast spawner.  More specifically, I would like to know if this species is hermaphroditic or gonochoric?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you  and Happy Holidays,
