Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription This species is the less common of the two, but is widely distributed. Branches of Seriatopora caliendrum are usually considerably thicker than those of S. hystrix, and may be fairly straight. Calices commonly have hoods, so that on thicker branched colonies there is a very close resemblance to slender Stylophora pistillata from sheltered water. However, calices of Seriatopora caliendrum run in rows and are oval. It is not a common species, but is found on reef slopes between the surface and 25 m deep. It prefers sheltered water, and is more common on back reef than fore reef areas (Sheppard, 1998).
Branches do not taper, they may be widely spaced or compact. Corallites tend to have a Stylophora-like hood. Colour: cream or brown. Abundance: uncommon except on some upper reef slopes (Veron, 1986). [details]
