Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Corals are usually monocentric, rarely polycentric. Secondary centres may occur inside or outside the original calice and calices may divide. Walls are indistinct beneath the septo-costae. Septa slope evenly, with little fusion. Primary septa have large, regular, blunt teeth. Columellae are broad and compact. Polyps are extended only at night. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]
