Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies are arborescent with thin tapered branches, without axial corallites. All corallites are radial, and are small and immersed. Septa are in two cycles with inward-projecting teeth. Columellae are absent. Corallite walls and the coenosteum are porous, without elaborations. Polyps are extended day and night and are widely spaced; they are small, with fine tentacles (Veron, 1986 <57>). [details]
