Description 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]
