Dear List,

We observed a partial spawning of A. digitifera on August 5, 2007 at around
8 pm. 3 out of 8 colonies released egg and sperm bundles. 
On August 7, 2007 we had a partial spawn of A. humilis with 2 out of  5
colonies spawning at around 10 pm. However the 2 colonies that did spawn
only released about half of their egg and sperm bundles. 
All remaining colonies have not spawned yet and still have gametes.

Regards, Peter
