Description Basically a massive coral with vertical, thick spires projecting from the base. It is not one of the truly ramose corals and the spires do not generally fuse and do not generally divide further until the "basal" part has also grown upwards. Forms high coverage over large areas on reef slopes in the Gulf in particular (Sheppard, 1998). [details]
