Abstract: The sea anemone Anthopfeura elegantissima forms clonal aggregations
on rocky shores along the Pacific Coast of North America by a process of
longitudinal fission. Fission can occur by lateral stretching of the column and
separation of the two halves followed by internal regeneration of parts of the
actinopharynx and of the column. Two new directive mesenteries, one siphonoglyph,
and several pairs of mesenteries flanking the directives also form .
Alternatively, large individuals appear to form new directive mesenteries and
siphonoglyphs well in advance of division
