Description Agariciidae have very fine tentacles which are seldom extended during the day (except for Pavona explanulata).
Little is known about their sexual reproduction, except that different species may be separately sexed or hermaphrodite and may brood planula larvae or release gametes.
The genera in this family are colonial (except for some fossil genera), hermatypic. Colonies are massive, laminar or foliaceous. Corallites are immersed with poorly defined walls formed by thickening of the septo-costae. Septa seldom fuse and are continuous between adjacent corallite centres. They have smooth or finely serrated margins and are closely packed.
Similar family is Siderastreidae. (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
