A sea star which has regrown a complete body from a single arm (the largest arm). Sea Stars are all capble of regrowing a complete individual from a single arm. Though this is technically a form of asexual reproduction, sea stars also can reproduce sexually. This particular sea star is probably a colorform of Linkia cf. multifora.

Detached Reef's in this remote area are named as they are near - but not directly attached to the Great Barrier Reef system.
