Reproduction Preferences Additional InformationDispersal is limited because asexual reproduction produces no planktonic larval phase. Asexual reproduction is via a form of fission called basal laceration where the anemone creeps along a rock leaving fragments of its base behind which develop into miniature new anemones. Sexual reproduction has not been recorded but may occur. Some form of dispersal must exist, as distribution of this species is widespread.
