Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription The pectiniids, except Pectinia, have mussid-like polyps, typically thick and fleshy and usually very colourful. Polyps are extended only at night. They usually have long, thin, translucent tentacles. As far as is known, pectiniids are hermaphrodites and release gametes during periods of mass spawning for external fertilisation. There is one solitary fossil genus, the remainder are colonial and hermatypic. Colonies are basically laminar, composed of thin plates. Corallite walls are absent or formed by the non-porous costate coenosteum of the laminae. Related family is Mussidae. Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
