Description Colonies are submassive, laminar, foliaceous, encrusting or branching. Corallites are very small. Septa are in two cycles with inward-projecting teeth. Columellae are absent. Corallite walls and the coenosteum are porous and may be highly elaborated. Polyps are usually extended only at night (Veron, 1986).
Commonly forms plates or encrusting sheets, but also several other forms. Distinguished by its deep, tiny corallites (<1mm across) separated by porous walls. Since the corallites lack virtually any features, identification to species level is very difficult. When forming plates, corallites occur on both surfaces (Richmond, 1997). [details]
