Description This is an oval Fungia, similar to Fungia scutaria, but unlike the latter it does not have lobes scattered on the surface. Primary septa run from the central oral area to the perimeter. (Sheppard, 1998 <308>)
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]
