Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies are usually massive, either flat or dome-shaped. Corallites are monocentric and cerioid, occasionally subplocoid. Adjacent corallites mostly share common walls. Paliform lobes are often poorly developed. Polyps are extended only at night and have a single circle of tapering tentacles like Favia (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Type species: Favites astrinus Link, 1807 from an unknown locality Veron, 1986). [details]
