Description Colonies are free-living, elongate, with an axial furrow that may extend to the corallum ends. Several centres, corresponding with mouths, are arranged along the furrow and secondary centres are distributed over the rest of the upper surface. Septa are similar in structure to those of Fungia (Pleuractis). Polyps are extended only at night. Tentacles are short and widely spaced, like Fungia. Secondary centres have single tentacles.
