Description Cosmopolitan genus of non-reef building scleractinia. Solitary, free-living corals that are purse-shaped with or without rootlets. Seta are very fine and numerous. Columellae are absent or nearly so. Polyps are extended day and night and are large, like Tubastraea (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
