Egg masses are deposited on the sponge food. The pinkish-orange eggs are very small and closely packed in a thin transparent ribbon arranged in a spiral of approximately three coils. The free edge of the ribbon is distinctly crenulate. The size of the eggs and type of egg ribbon are typical of planktotrophic larval development. [The animal alongside the egg ribbon is a juvenile].
