Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Alveopora is distinguished by its very light and porous skeletal structure in which septa are reduced to being rows of small spines. (Sheppard, 1998 <308>).
Colonies are massive or branching, often with irregular shapes. The skeletal structure is very light, consisting of interconnecting rods and spines. Corallites have walls that are very perforated and septa that are mostly composed of fine spines which may meet in the centre forming a columella tangle. Polyps are large and fleshy and are normally extended day and night. They have 12 tentacles, often with swollen knob-like tips. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Type species: Madrepora daedalea Forskal, 1977 from the Red Sea (Veron, 1986). [details]
