Greotti Cesare Red coral, Corallium rubrum, is located on a rock bottom, in caves, in crevices under low light levels, from 30m to 100m deep. It reproduces sexually by larvae that, after about a month of an initial embryonic stage and a few days of planktonic life, fix to the substrate with special needs like constant salinity and reduced agitation of thewater. That is why it is found more frequently in caves, where it grows down to prevent it from being covered by sediments. It grows 3-4cm every 10 years. (Photo taken by Giovanni Radicella Chiaramonte in 'A.M.P Portofino)
