Lacey Coral 2

Lace corals have stinging polyps called dactylozooids, and feeding polyps called gastrozooids. Five to fifteen long, thin dactylozooids circle the gastrozooids and help in feeding. The stinging nematocysts on the stinging polyps can irritate skin, but are not toxic. The green lacey coral is on the left side of this photograph. [BM] {PH}
