Most coral species of known reproductive traits are broadcast spawners, with about 65% being hermaphrodites that envelop their gametes together in oocyte–sperm bundles. While these bundles are crucial for the dispersion and successful cross-fertilization of gametes, research evaluating their structure in detail is rare in the literature. Here, we i...
