Description Colonies are massive, columnar or encrusting. Corallites are immersed, circular, with two unequal cycles of septa and a style-like columella. The coenosteum is covered with fine spinules and also by larger pointed styles which are almost as numerous as the corallites. Polyps have not been observed extended. (Veron, 1986 <57>)

Encrusting, with small corallites. Associated with each corallite is a small styliform pillar of coenosteum which can be distinguished underwater as well as in cleaned specimens. Two species exist in the Indian Ocean, distinguished by whether the two cycles of septa are unequal (S. guentheri) or equal in size (S. armata). <308> [details]
