Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Parasimplastrea sheppardi are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Parasimplastrea sheppardi, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Parasimplastrea sheppardi, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

Husbandry

Veron, 2000

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”

Special thanks for the use of their photos to Dr. Lyndon DeVantier and Dr. Peter Harrison!

Colonies are encrusting to submassive. Corallites are 4-6 millimetres diameter. A ?groove and tubercle? formation may be present, but corallites are cerioid to subplocoid, retaining individual walls. Septa have smooth or slightly serrated margins, are widely spaced, and plunge steeply within the corallite. Columellae are rudimentary, consisting of thickened inner septal margins. Polyps are fleshy.

Colour: Brown with greenish calices.

Habitat: Reef environments.

Abundance: Uncommon.

Similar species: Blastomussa merleti , Leptastrea bewickensis
