Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies may reach several metres across. They consist of mixtures of small plates and twisted projections, some projections developing into short, stout branches. The surface of the coral is covered with ridges which run between rows of calices. Calices themselves are minute (less than 1 mm diameter). Colours are usually basically brown or pale brown, but yellow colonies are also common, with strong pink colours also sometimes seen, some with blue edges to branches are plates (Sheppard, 1998).
Colonies are laminar or contorted anastomosing branches and columns. Corallites are very small. They are separated into groups by ridges which characteristically converge towards each other forming flame-shaped patterns. Colour: pale cream or yellow, or dark bluish-brown, often with pale branch tips. Abundance: usually uncommon but occurs in a wide range of habitats (Veron, 1986).
Distinguished by its extremely small calices (<0.6 mm). Open water colonies encrusting to massive, usually with a wrinkled surface; those in more hidden locations with a smooth surface. Colour: brown, pale grey or bright yellowish-green. Habitat: shallow sheltered reefs (Richmond, 1997). [details]
