Note 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription It is the biggest family in terms of number of genera, and ranks next to the Acroporidae in number of species. All extant species are hermatypic and colonial. Septa, paliform lobes, columellae and wall structures, when present, all appear to be structurally similar. Septal structures are simple, columellae are a simple tangle of elongate septal teeth, walls are composed of thickened septa and cross-linkages. Related families are Merulinidae and Trachyphylliidae. (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
