Main identification characters
Data exist in different language. Feel free to update this datasheet and translate the data :
Le corail Stylaster est une colonie d'hydrozoaire. De forme branchue, aux ramifications fines, disposées dans un seul plan. Indifféramment de couleur jaune, orange ou rose, ils affectionnent les excavations sombres du tombant des récifs extérieurs où l'eau est renouvellée en permanance mais où l'agitation n'est pas trop importante.

Ce sont les seules formes, avec Distichopora, à conserver leur couleur après la mort.
