Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Colonies range from thick, foliaceous or encrusting coralla, to low, submassive forms, rarely larger than 20 cm diameter. This is a very polymorphic species, showing wide, habitat-related skeletal variations. Budding is intratentacular. Calices range from 3 to 7 mm across, and may be largely monocentric or may run in short meandroid series. Calice depth ranges equally greatly, from 2 to 5 mm. Walls are thick. Septa are thick, with granular edges; colonies from very turbid locations may be particularly granular, almost furry in appearance, with smaller calices. This is a very common species. It is particularly common on deeper parts of reef slopes where it can be found to at least 50 m deep. It is also common in turbid water of back reef slopes where it takes on a more contorted shape, and it is one of the few species commonly found in holes on reef flats and in close proximity to mangroves, and even is abundant in the areas of cold upwelling water (Sheppard, 1998).
Often forms circular, encrusting, slightly mounded, plate-like colonies. The calices (3-7 mm) are variable in form, being circular to oval or long and meandering, and may be aligned in shallow, concentric valleys which are roughly parallel to the margin of the colony. Between the corallites, fine septo-costal connections overly this pattern. Colour: usually pale brown or greenish. Habitat: diverse, on reef flats to deeper slopes (Richmond, 1997).
