Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies are massive, arborescent or foliaceous or mixtures of these forms. Corallites are plocoid with calices up to 5 mm in diameter. Septa are exsert and irregular. Columellae are usually prominent. Costae are usually restricted to the corallite wall. The coenosteum is granulated (except E. mammiformis). Polyps are extended only at night (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
