Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies are usually massive, either flat or dome-shaped. Corallites are monocentric and plocoid: each corallite projects slightly above the colony surface and has its own wall. Daughter corallites are formed by intratentacular division. Polyps are extended only at night and have a simple circle of tapering tentacles, often with a pigmented tip (Veron, 1986). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Type species: Madrepora fragum Esper, 1795 from the Caribbean (Veron, 1986). [details]
