Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Discs are very neat and mostly circular. While the discs of some examples show irregularities, these are not nearly as distorted as in Diaseris. Primary septa are strongly arched and thickened. Synapticulae connecting adjacent septa are often clear. Costae reach the centre of the discs and are more or less equal. This is probably the commonest species of Cycloseris, in the northwest of the region at least, and is found on fine sand between reefs in sheltered locations as well as on the reef itself.

Corals are circular to slightly oval, with a central dome and a nearly flat undersurface. Colour: pale brown or cream, sometimes with dark perimeter. Abundance: usually uncommon. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]
