Description Septal teeth are irregular and fairly large, and on the underside, spines are elongated on every fourth or eighth costae. This subgenus of Fungia commonly have coarse teeth on the septa, though in this species this may not be so pronounced. There are usually several lobes on the upper surface. This species is very similar to Fungia corona though the latter may have a much more irregular outline. (Sheppard, 1998 <308>)
Corals are circular, up to 200 mm in diameter, with a strong central arch. Septa have large irregular teeth. Costae are very unequal, with long spines. There are no pits between the costae. Colour: usually brown. Abundance: Common. (Veron, 1986 <57>) [details]
