  • Anthozoa is a class within the phylum Cnidaria. Unlike other cnidarians, anthozoans do not have a medusa stage in their development. Instead, they release sperm and eggs that form a planula, which attaches to some substrate on which the cnidarian grows. Some anthozoans can also reproduce asexually through budding. More than 6,100 species have been described. The name comes from the Greek words άνθος and ζώα, hence anthozoa = "flower animals", a reference to the floral appearance of their perennial polyp stage.
