Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies are usually massive, sometimes branching or encrusting. Corallites are cerioid, formed by extratentacular budding, and are like those of Pseudosiderastrea, except that the walls are thicker, are composed of concentric rods, and septa do not fuse (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
