Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies are massive, encrusting or arborescent. The genus is characterised by the presence of hydnophores formed where sections of common wall between corallites intersect and develop into conical mounds. Hydnophores cover the colony surface and make this genus immediately recognisable. Polyps are usually extended only at night (except H. exesa and H. pilosa). Short tentacles surround the base of each hydnophore, one tentacle between each pair of septa (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
