Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Branches are stoutest in shallow water, and become finer with increasing depth. Below 30 metres, and in darkened recesses of the reef, branching then tends to become prostrate and branches become flattened in cross-section. On steep slopes, branches may even tend to fan downwards in a manner which ensures greatest light capture, and in these cases, usually seen below 40 m deep and in crevices, colonies may develop a layered branching structure, and even develop platy extensions formed by strongly anastomosed branches. Calices of all ecomorphs are 0.5 to 1.5 mm diameter, arranged not in straight rows but scattered irregularly and usually closely. Calices are usually hooded by a projection of coenosteum on the side of calice towards the branch tip, though in many cases there may be a continuous raised rim around each corallite instead, while in others there may be no raised projections at all. All features may be found on a single corallum. Corallites have 6 primary septa and a small columella. Sheltered colonies have slender branches, and in deep or dim conditions, colonies commonly form layers of horizontal branches which may anastomose or even fuse into plate-like extensions. This ramose species is found in an enormous range of habitats, from the most exposed, shallow reef crest situations to at least 50 m deep, and is also found in extreme conditions of turbidity such as on mangrove roots. In all regions, it may be heavily dominant in localised, usually shallow areas of exposed reef slopes (Sheppard, 1998); rocks (Kalk, 1959).
Colonies are branching with blunt-ended branches becoming thick and submassive. Corallites are immersed, conical or hooded. They have a solid style-like columella, six primary septa, which may be short or fused with the columella, and sometimes six short secondary septa. The coenosteum is covered by fine spinules. Polyps are extended only at night. Colour: Uniform cream, pink, blue or green (Veron, 1986).
Extremely variable growth form. Ends of branches blunt and often slightly club-shaped; corallites 0.5-1.5 mm across with conspicuous hoods. Colour cream, pale yellow or green. Habitat: exposed reef fronts and tidal areas (Richmond, 1997).
Also distributed in Australia (Kalk, 1958).
Tropical Indo-Pacific in Kalk (1958). [details]
