Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonial, hermatypic, mostly extant. Colonies usually massive, laminar or ramose. Corallites have a wide size range but are usually compacted with little or no coenosteum. Walls and septa are porous. Poritidae is an isolated family. It is essentially a heterogeneous assembly of distantly related genera. (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
