Dear Salva and list-ers:
In terms of sexual reproduction, both Chloeia viridis and Pareurythoe
chilensis are probably planktotrophic, based on observations. However,
many species of Pareurythoe also reproduce asexually. I presently have
thriving cultures of at least 2 different Pareurythoe species (Fiji, Thailand)
that reproduce this way. And it is present on most all of the Pareurythoe
species I have examined. Hope this helps.
