Description All genera in this family are highly polymorphic and all show similar growth forms in response to wave action and light availability. Most species brood planula larvae after internal fertilisation rather than release gametes into the water. They brood at regular or irregular intervals throughout the year. Mature colonies are hermaphrodite.
Colonial and mostly hermatypic. Colonies are submassive, ramose or arborescent. Corallites are immersed to conical, small, have well-developed columellae and neatly arranged septa of two cycles or less, some usually fused with the columella. The coenosteum is covered with spinules. Related families are Astrocoeniidae and Acroporidae.(Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
