Info

Diadumene leucolena (Verrill, 1866)

Diadumene leucolena reproduces sexually. It is found in the intertidal and subtidal areas of the northeastern Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea and the northern Pacific Ocean.

The ghost anemone eats plankton and tiny fish, using its stinging tentacles to stun and capture its prey, then push the prey into.
