Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

de Angelis, 1908

Very special thanks for the first photo of Oculina patagonica to Rafael Medina, he took the picture in Puntal de la Azohía, Murcia, Spain on the 2rd of September 2012.

This species is both zooxanthellate and azooxanthellate. Colonies are encrusting or form clumps of short, thick, highly fused branches. Corallites are crowded, up to 5 millimetres diameter and have neat round exsert walls. Long and short septa clearly alternate. Costae are weakly developed.

Colour: Yellowish-brown.

Habitat: Rocky foreshores and caves.
