Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies have a wide variety of growth forms ranging from bottlebrush to corymbose. They are always very sturdy, with thick tapering branches. Radial corallites are irregular and have a wide range of shapes and sizes but are characteristically thick-walled with rounded margins. Colour: uniform grey, creamy brown or purple. Abundance: Restricted to shallow upper reef slopes exposed to strong wave action or currents (Veron, 1986). [details]
