Description Genus of non-reef building scleractinians; Indo-Pacific. Colonial, budding occurs from rootlets but these are seen during early stages only. Corallites are tubular with thin walls, thin, weakly toothed septa and weakly developed columellae. Polyps are extended day and night. They are small with short, straight radiating tentacles (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
