Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Hoeksema, 2014

Very special thanks for the photo of "his" Cycloseris boschmai coral to Dr. Bert W. Hoeksema, Department of Marine Zoology, Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Netherlands.

Cycloseris boschmai was described in 2014 by Bert Hoeksema, the specialist of Fungiid taxonomy and also the namesake of the fabulous blue staghorn, Acropora hoeksemai.

The species is confined to the “coral triangle” from Sabah and Layang Layang in eastern Malaysia to eastern Indonesia, the central Philippines, Palau and Papua, New Guinea.

Dr Bert Hoeksema of the Naturalis Biodiversity Centre in Leiden, Netherlands, has described a beautiful new mushroom coral, the smallest discovered to date. Cycloseris boschmai, like many new species before it, had been previously collected and preserved as museum specimens but misidentified and lumped together with somewhat similar specimens of another species.

When their mouths become clogged with sand and feeding becomes impossible, budding is the last survival strategy open to them.
