Comments: Club anemones get their common name from their club-shaped or "capitate" tentacles; the anemone's tentacles are equipped with powerful stinging cells called "nematocysts" which can dispatch a lethal sting to their small prey, although the sting of a club anemone would be harmless to humans. Club anemones form colonies via binary fission, but they can also reproduce by dispersing sexual gametes into the ocean.
