Description Colonies are caespito-corymbose with thin branches. Radial corallites are scale-like, highly structured and do not have a rosette-like appearance. Polyps are frequently extended during the day. Colour: pale cream or brown. Abundance: Seldom common but occurs in a wide variety of environments from exposed upper reef slopes to turbid lagoons (Veron, 1986). [details]
