Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies are massive, either flat or dome-shaped. Corallites are rarely cerioid, commonly meandroid. Paliform lobes are not developed, columellae seldom form centres and are a continuous tangle of spines. Polyps are usually extended only at night (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
