Description Colonies are primarily foliaceous, usually with very thin folia. Calices are round or oval in shape, irregular, shallow, not strongly inclined on the corallum surface. Septa are few, columellae are poorly developed. The coenosteum is pitted at the insertion of new septo-costae. Polyps are extended only at night. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]
