From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription All genera are extant, hermatypic and colonial. Skeletal structures are faviid-like but are highly fused, without paliform lobes. Valleys are superficial or may become obscured because of fanwise spreading or contortions. Related families are Faviidae and Trachyphylliidae. (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
