  1. order alcyonaria

    Order Alcyonaria, also known as Alcyonacea or soft corals, is a group within the subclass Octocorallia of the phylum Cnidaria. Species under this order are known for their octomerous body symmetry, meaning they have eight tentacles and eight mesenteries. The order comprises numerous families such as sea pens, gorgonians (sea whips, sea fans), and soft corals. Unlike hard corals, Alcyonarians do not form significant calcium carbonate structures, making them more flexible or soft. They inhabit marine environments, particularly in tropical reefs, and play essential roles in maintaining the underwater ecosystem.
