Description Corals are usually oval in general form, though very contorted. They may remain attached to the substrate even when large, or show the attachment scar on their underside. The upper surface may show one or more secondary centres outside the main, central one. (Sheppard, 1998 <308>)
Corals are usually attached to, or encrust, the substrate. They may be shaped like F. paumotensis or very contorted. They usually have a strong central arch. In uncontorted specimens, primary septa extend from the mouth to the perimeter. An attachment scar is usually prominent. Colour: brown, cream or mottled. Abundance: usually uncommon.
