Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies are massive, usually flat. Corallites are cerioid or subplocoid, monocentric, either circular or angular in shape. Septo-costae are thick near the corallite wall, becoming thin near the columella, and have tall mussid teeth. Polyps are thick-walled and are extended only at night. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Type species: Acanthastrea spinosa Edwards & Haime, 1848 = Astrea echinata Dana, 1846 from Tonga (Veron, 1986). [details]
