Description All species, except for C. japonica (which is arborescent with axial and radial corallites), are massive or encrusting. Corallites are plocoid, with calices less than 3 mm in diameter. Costae are generally restricted to the corallite wall; the coenosteum is granulated. Polyps are extended only at night (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
