Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies are massive, columnar, laminar or foliaceous with foliae frequently contorted. Corallites are round, immersed to tubular and have porous walls with the same structure as the surrounding coenosteum. Septa are short and neat, columellae are broad and compact. Polyps, except for those of T. peltata, are usually extended only at night (Veron, 1986). [details]
