Reproductive Biology and Growth of the Genus Epizoanthus (Zoanthidea) From the North-East Atlantic

  • A. Muirhead (a1), P. A. Tyler (a1) and M. H. Thurston (a2)

The genus Epizoanthus Gray is represented in the north-east Atlantic by three species, all of which live commensally with pagurid crabs. The shallowest-living of the three, Epizoanthus incrustatus (Duben and Koren) occurs with Anapagurus laevis (Bell) within the depth range 20–200 m (Manuel, 1981). Epizoanthus paguriphilus Verrill and Epizoanthus abyssorum Verrill are associated with Parapagurus pilosimanus (Smith), the former within the depth range 600–1550 m and the latter at 3500–4350 m.
