Description Colonies are corymbose plates with branches up to 10 mm thick which are tapering, evenly spaced and curving upward to a uniform height. Colour: always a distinctive pale pinky brown. Pale-grey tentacles are often extended during the day. Abundance: uncommon except on some upper reef slopes. Colonies are up to approximately 1 m in diameter (Veron, 1986). [details]
