Both species Solenastraea broadcast, Helioseris cucullata is brooder. Reference:
Riddle, Dana, 2008. Coral reproduction, Part Three. Advanced Aquarist's Online Magazine, VII(IX): 5-40.
By the way, there are no reasons to use Leptoseris for cucullata, Helioseris is correct.
Hope this is of help.

Subject: [Coral-List] Leptoseris cucullata and Solenastrea
Does anyone have any information of the sexuality and/or mode of larval development on Helioseris cucullata (Ellis and Solander 1786) now known as Leptoseris cucullata?
or for the genus Solenastrea?
I am pretty sure these are the only two Caribbean genera for which there is currently no information on sex or mode so if anyone is looking for a good minor research project this could be it.
