Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies may be submassive, plate-like, columnar or digitate or various combinations of these forms. Plate-like and digitate forms are usually found in turbid water; massive and columnar forms occur on reef slopes. Corallites are both immersed and exsert, the latter with thecal papillae; shorter papillae also occur on the reticulum, which is coarse. Colour: pale brown, sometimes with white branch tips. Abundance: common, especially in turbid water (Veron, 1986). [details]
