Description Colonies are foliaceous, sometimes laminar or encrusting, the former being usually unifacial. They frequently have a distinctive central corallite. Corallites have poorly defined walls. They are small shallow depressions with a central columella, usually separated by ridges and interconnected by fine septo-costae. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]

Description Colonies are foliaceous, sometimes laminar or encrusting, the former being usually unifacial. They frequently have a distinctive central corallite. Corallites have poorly defined walls. They are small shallow depressions with a central columella, usually separated by ridges and interconnected by fine septo-costae. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]

Remark Type species: Leptoseris fragilis Edwards & Haime, 1849 from the Bourbon Islands (Veron, 1986). [details]
