Corals are elongate, up to 250 mm long with almost parallel sides, and thick and heavy, usually with a strong central arch. Most primary septa extend from the mouth to the perimeter. There are no attachment scars exception immature specimens. Colour: usually brown. Abundance: common. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]
